"You know I used to keep a red Bandanna at a switch in my car because like oh I got an audition. Okay here we go. Here's another gang member from NPR media. It's USA. I might know Hosa today actor. Lou Diamond Phillips on being Latino Infield If you've seen the iconic film La Bamba then you've seen the talent of Lou Diamond Phillips Loyd who plays the lead character Richie Valley the film details details the life of the Mexican American Rock Legend from his Childhood in Coin California breakfast is on the table. I'm off to work and don't at school today it up until his untimely death when he and other rock and roll icons. Buddy Holly and j p the big bopper Richardson were killed in a plane crash in one thousand nine hundred sixty nine was still in high school when he was signed to Delphi label eight months later Ritchie valances code that they is also known as the day the music died La Bamba. The movie was released almost twenty years later in nineteen eighty seven and EPA time. Lou was a young emerging actor in his mid twenties. Wendy's little did he know that this role would catapult him into the limelight and into the hearts of the Mexican American community around the country Lou Diamond Phillips who's the son of a white American father and a Filipina mother her has since starred in films. TV shows as Chicano more bad news for profit forgot my pencil and native American characters. I warrior look down on the land was his home. He was happy in this conversation. Lou Talks about how is upbringing molded his experiences as an actor and how he continues to play an array of roles with an open mind and a willingness to learn Lou Diamond Phillips welcome welcome to Latino USA Maria. Thank you so much. Thanks for having me and Nice talking to you again my goodness. It's been a few years hasn't it. It's been a long time Rousseau happy to have you on the show again so lou a lot of people you know they know you obviously and you know this from. Alabama just plain Richie Valentine's everybody but he kind of probably came to you and said wow Lou Diamond Phillips what a Nice Mexican Dude and you're like. UN No not exact Zang Mexican adjacent Mexican adjacent so you were actually born in the Philippines unable base. Your mom is from the Philippines. Your Dad is an American Man White Guy. Yes Scotch Irish English Anglican on my father's side and then you're raised east in Corpus Christi Eventually Yes. I spent a lot of time on navy bases are in the early part of my life and then eventually settle down in Corpus Christi you know became Tejano by Osmosis. You know spend a lot of my formative years there so let's talk about that. I mean a lot of us. Obviously when we're so little we're not thinking about race and identity Eddie and culture and ethnicity. But how did you understand who you were in the context of the way that you were traveling around. I don't think it became became articulated for me or define for me until probably late in high school or college. I mean what's interesting is growing up. I only ever ever consider myself to be American being on navy bases. I was around a lot of mixed race kids. You know a lot of kids who were the product of navy basis around the world in the Philippines. We were stationed there for a while and so a lot of kids on that base where Filipino American and so it wasn't wasn't odd to me then all of a sudden. I became not only aware that I was different. A and you know once again. It's also about checking off boxes for the most party checked off other because all of a sudden I realized oh others seem to fit you know for the most part eventually to the University of Texas at Arlington and running into a situation where like for instance I you know because it was the thing to do when to rush week and no fraternity signed me trying to get a job because I had to work through college and suddenly not getting the waiter job but being offered the busboy job and so all of a sudden I ran smack DAB into a lot of racism awesome in my first couple of years of college that were a bucket of cold water because that was not my experience growing up so when you think about your experience growing up you it looks like you kind of knew from when you were pretty young that you wanted to act you go oh to the University of Texas at Arlington to study drama. Can you make the connection when you were like. Oh acting. That's what I want to do. And when did that happen in your young life you remember I actually wrote a play. The we had a couple of very smart teachers when I was in sixth grade and we had a lot of over achieving achieving kids so they set us to writing a Christmas play and we basically ripped off Charles Schultz. We did a take on peanuts and I played linus in wrote myself. All the funniest lines that's all it takes is to get a few laughs when you're on stage to get bitten by the bug aw and then when we transferred to Corpus Christi I joined Drama Club Right off the bat. I got in the very first college play and then I also got my very first film and I was nineteen years old in a Christian youth film called Angel Alley so you're you're a budding actor. You're auditioning. I mean you hear about La Bamba. Actually they had like traveled to multiple cities looking for the person who is going to play Ritchie Valens. Can you kind of paint a picture picture of yourself right before that big break. So what were you doing and when you went to the audition for La Bamba. Were you like okay this is it's definitely like my moment or were you like. Oh my God. They've been in so many cities. I'll just go to the wine not I. I was completely ignorant of it and let me back up a paint a picture for where I'm at. I am actually now working in the Dallas Fort Worth area as a professional actor. I mean I'm thrilled. I'm now twenty four years old. I was doing a lot of theater theater and I was working. You know in the Texas Industries as far as film and television goes I mean here. I was actually paying my bills by being an actor so I was. I was pretty thrilled and then you know I had an agent. I was constantly going on auditions and the funny thing is because once again here we go in this particular market. There weren't a lot of guys that looked like me. I kind Hannah cornered the market on that. You Know Young Brown guys. I mean that's why I was working a lot so I was getting all of the Brown roles in Dallas Texas and so now I get a call from my agent and it's it's like okay. there is a musical that's being cast in Dallas and it's on the life of Frankie Valli and I went okay all right. You Know Frankie Valli Italian for seasons adultery. I can do that sure I'll get a perm. I'm about a foot and a half tall but whatever ever GIG and so I go down to the theater in downtown Dallas to go to this audition and find out that it is not a musical about Frankie Frankie Valli it is a movie about Ritchie valance and I had no clue and I walk in the door and there's you know maybe eight guys that look like me and they explained to us this is a movie on the life of Ritchie Valens to to Hollywood film fighting known this nervous heck walking through the door but they'd already cast in. La And New York they had cast in Miami and Chicago and they still haven't quite found what they wanted and you weren't immediately cast for Richie. You're maybe going to play his brother. Bob who ends up being played by the fabulous he lists eastern. Morale is when they flew me off the screen tests. They used me as a reader. I read Bob with all of these other actors coming into play Richie so it. It wasn't a fatal complete I do. I didn't just get flown out to do a screen test. I got flown out to continue to audition and as you said before I auditioned for Bob but I also did for Richie and it wasn't until they've flipped me and put me with east side. Things became clear for them. I think and you end up blanding the role of Ritchie Valens and people might not know in fact the family of Ritchie Valens was really involved in the film so what happens after you get that part I get the part fly back to Texas to pack a bag for a couple of months because only for a week and then to be picked up by Bob Bob the real Bob Morales and taken immediately to the House the Ritchie bought Connie and to meet mom and to meet the sisters and to meet Rosie and had to be immediately embraced by this family and to have bob say the second. I laid eyes on you knew it was you coming up on Latino. USA My conversation with actor Lou Diamond Phillips continues stay stay with us not the witness and an incident in Nashville that shocked the Latino community a computer designed to control the entire Chilean economy. A Martian invasion Ecuador is back with a brand new season season. NPR SPANISH-LANGUAGE PODCAST will take you around Latin America to show you the fascinating strangely compelling stories of the region subscribe listen every Tuesday. Ah Yeah aw we're back and when we left off Lou Diamond Phillips had just plus gotten the rule of Ritchie Valens in La Bomba directed by chicano filmmaker Louise about this in this part of the conversation Lou Diamond Phillips talks about his career and how he approaches playing characters that don't share his same ethnic background. It's interesting watching the movie now. Because of course you are playing Ritchie Valens and your Filipino American and other and east. I'm Morales is Puerto Rican. Yes plane pitchy balance brother Bob. Yes rock in life. Tell you don't need no bad. You just play the bars with a drummer mean for instance talking about making money talking about making music music. That's all I care about and I. I know that it was like a huge moment for you as an actor but at what moment did you realize like this is about having like an imprint of making you know. Latinos Brown folks kind of center stage kind of like it's on your shoulders. I was blessed. I was nothing short of blessed to understand the context in which Luis Valdez was making this film and all of a sudden. I am faced with a history history and a culture that I didn't growing up in this funky little town in Texas. I had no clue about Cesar Chavez about the farm workers about the Mexican American experience in California and in America it was a master class in history and political science and culture that Luz Valdez taught and the context in which he was making this film about a rock and roll icon all of that goes into the understanding of this film. Do you have a moment where you remember Luis Valdez with that extraordinary voice of his eh saying something just clicked yeah. It was interesting. He was talking to me about the Mayan calendar. Actually you know I thought holy crap wrap. This guy's such as making a movie man. He's you know this is a through line for him and he was talking about the cycle of things in how all this was the year to make Lamba because he was thirty years after the actual event which is interesting because this year is the sixtieth anniversary of the day. The music died. We interrupt erupted program for a special news bulletin three young singers who saw the height of show business on the current rock and roll craze or killed today in the crash was Danny Valdez who had originally originally gotten the rights to it because he wanted to play Richie he had done boulevard nights and he had done zoot suit he was the lead in bones brother a direct to them and and this was his project and it languished it took so long to get it made that he was too old and now he was the uncle and yet he was Danny who said go to Texas assist. You GonNa Find Ritchie in Texas go to Texas. Wow so I gotta tell you that. One of my favorite things about watching La Bamba again was watching watching you with the fabulous Elizabeth Bena via. May she rest in peace. God bless her. You're looking really handsome. Ritchie craziest you know there. Is this chemistry that you had. It's almost as if you did in in fact I mean a lot of people look at you and they see Ritchie Valens the family did and they call me Richie for the entire run of the shoot. Did you feel like when you were onset onset. Then and Plane Ritchie Valens that he was in fact Kinda like Hey Lou. We couldn't be more different but I'm with you and I'm an empower. Are you to play me in a way that is going to become unforgettable in American movie history. You know what you know. It's interesting. I don't think I've ever told this story so bob picks me up at the airport and come back from Texas right and takes me immediately to the House that Richie bought Connie senior. and we have dinner and I stay the night right at that house. I stayed the night at that house. I slept in one of the bedrooms. I remember praying that night. I prayed. I said Richie here. I am in show me the way you show me. What you want me to do is my constant prayers and actor to have an open heart in an open mind so I needed to be open to that and to be open open to all of the the input and to subjugate my own ego to that role. I felt like he was there with me. I really do so. You're next big hit. I mean these are like iconic films in a time when we were being told that people of Color Latinos that we kind of matter but you know in the film standing delivery kind of encompasses it all all that's a story about High Michigan. He's a high school teacher in east. La some people in this world we will assume that you know less than you do because of your name and your complexion but that is the great equalizer the big story goes that he's teaching Calculus Calculus. AP Calculus in East Los Angeles and his entire class passes the test but of course then there question because how is it possible that bunch of Brown kids could pass the calculus AP test those cars would have been questioned and Mike you not have Spanish surnames surnames and come from schools. You know that you play the rule of Anghel Cushman Angel whose man and again just going back and looking at it boy the outfits were kind of fabulous that you were wearing the head well actually why don't you describe your character of Angel's mind and and how you would kind of get into character what was interesting. I was almost out of money from La Bomba. I got paid scale for that. You know so a total of four or five thousand dollars Wayne in what y'all yeah wait. Oh yeah wait. Wait wait a second. What yeah yeah everybody pay scale it. Was it was a negative pickup. The entire your budget. The movie was six million dollars. It was a kind of a a small independent films exactly you were never able to get any of the residuals well yeah but I mean residuals on a on a on a thousand dollar check. Is You know it's not much even now. It's you know it's like sixteen cents yes or no. I did not get rich off that film but he gave me my career so I am not resentful in the least on us in deliver standing liberals made for a million bucks. That's it so I actually stumbled into that. I mean I was almost out of money. I addition they gave me the role of Angel because see the counselor monkeying and we'll go find yourself another class which is mixed soft. Shusha Marc chagall needed okay chemo. The man you know and the next thing you know here we are making this really gritty really wonderful little low budget film. There's a moment where your character angel walks up to the teacher. I Miss Landon says look. I got a problem and your character angel is like Super Smarting Calculus but he says I got a problem with the books. I've got a a little problem will no seriously books. St meanwhile him around wouldn't want anyone to think you're intelligent. Maybe I can upto books coupon stashed again. He's kind of a Chicano kind of gang banger from east. La How did you get into plane his role role once again. It's just it was an education. It was researched because this is obviously something that I am not now. Danny Vigliotti L. is a technical advisor on this. He's a PA okay and he's not even an actor in it and so they put me together with him because he is a former gang who got out of the gangs angel was his his life. That's right I thought you and so I wrote around with him for a couple of weeks and he would take me places uses and show me things and show me where friends of his shot talk about you know the some of the crimes that he did when he was a teenager so once again getting this very rivera quick education and honestly both films both films Love Santa Deliver. We had no idea that they're going to have the impact that they did zero so let me ask you why you know given that you again your own. Ethnic experience or background wasn't one of being Latino Dino or Mexican talked me a little bit more about that and why you were like no absolutely says Chavez icy myself in you and absolutely Louise Louise by this. I see myself in you. What was that thing that made you say. This is what I need to be doing. It's interesting because I never tried to co-opt just wanted to be a soldier and it was that you know hey lou you re representing the Latino community. Here's how you give back and and I was like absolutely. Tell me where to go. Tell me where to show up and that's what led me to meeting Cesar during that fast that he was doing and then you know I do stand in the liver and once again then here I am introduced to a subculture of Mexican American life that I knew nothing about and that's you know that this was an education for me I never took the privilege of representing community for granted because I am such a mixed bag you know an American mutt that physically and facially I'm able to represent different communities. It's it's always been important to me to do that with respect and to do that with intelligence now you take these roles stereotypical roles and you do something that is respectful and that brings pride and it has a nobility ended integrity to it and the way to do that is to be specific and to not just play this surface to understand the roots of what you're getting at. It's certainly theater training but is the conversations with Lewisville. Does that sort of galvanized nice that approach in my mind Lou Diamond Phillips. I'm just going to say what it was out of you whether what. La Lou Diamond Phillips thank you so much for joining me on the USA. It's been great speaking with you.

Welcome to the connects a podcast series about movie intersections hosted by myself and multiple time New York. Times. Author Shea Serano in which yes. We talk about movies one picked by me one pick by Shea and the theme that connects them today. It's movies you shouldn't watch on a plane. Mexican teenager in Los. Angeles hits the big time. And United Nations field agent searches for a cure for Zombie. ISM. One thousand nine hundred eighty seven La Bamba. And two, thousand, Thirteen's world. War. Z.. Do the hello baby. New. I was ready. I was excited I. Knew You were going to do it. Let me tell about it. Let me tell you about this movie to the EMMY winner Jason Concepcion La Bomba. Let's do the Meta data I nine hundred eighty seven is when it came out stars Lou Diamond Phillips East Timor's result though and Elizabeth, Panya, and this is one of those movies that's just always been around a couple of episodes ago we talked. About juice, which is one of the movies released during this period where we were getting a bunch of really great important black movies coming out all pretty close together La Bamba as part of the Latino, version of that stretch of a few years we got this we got standing deliver. We got the CHEECH and Chong Movies we American meal. Mariachi Blah. Blah desperado like there were a bunch and La Bamba is the Milagro. Bean field war. For the MILAGRO. Bean, field. War. Nah. La Bamba I think like in that group there's always an argument to be made that this is like the biggest or most impactful most important which is so good. You Re watch a now it's so touching it so smart it has such a heartbreaking and memorable ending a you already did the line from like it's still it's still hurts there's some movies where your uncle who like shows you the cool shit as like Oh, you got to see this movie. And it's usually something your parents would never ever let you see, and then there are some other movies where like your mom or your dad is like, Oh, you got to see this movie and it's like a life lesson he type thing in there some. Other movies where it's like a teacher at schools in class today, we're going to watch this movie in something and formative or intentional La Bamba is one of the few times I can remember 'em life were all of those different people were talking about the same move just stretches across everything. When did you watch this movie? Were you a kid I just remember it being on cable all the time Yeah reason I remember it is because I would watch it every time it came on because this is around the time when I was asking my parents to get me at guitar that took about a year and a half of just asking all the time like time, and I would always watch La Bamba because it has so many great guitar scenes and you could really see a Lou. Diamond Phillips. miming playing, but he does a really good job of it and it ends with the great clip of going all the way through the solo all the music as played by law Slovenia. It. was just a great guitar move its I was found myself fascinated by it. So you were a kid when you ask for guitar, you're like eight years old or some shit like that I was a kid and it took like two or three years of asking every every day. Andy Andy and Shawshank just email melanoma letter Mess. It you know as messed up the year. So like the Christmas before I ended up getting it I got it not during Christmas or birthday is about Gone, but it was like a hand me down but it's those great. But the Christmas before I got it when I thought I was getting it because they were like these hints and they are acting like it was real secret and this was going to be big thing I. got this Luke Really, Nice blue like freestyle bike and as Fuck Shit? Knowing. I was such a bitch about it just. ally. Do. Ball. A. fucking shitty powder blue bike. It was great. Was Good. When you re watch this movie to prepare for the PODCAST did you cry at the end tyranny for sure I teared up. Tear up and it's you tear up because you know what's going to happen. There's these moments. Let me just say Lou. Diamond. Phillips. Has One of the best smiles in movies. It's so good and electrowatt smile, and there's a the scene that I really love is mostly the the meal scenes between him and Bob and. Him End Donna but and it's that one with him Donna like having lunch where he's talking about how he's going to be a big star and he smile he's got that big smile. The Sun's coming through the win on his face. That's when I got a little Latro Cup was just like. Man This sucks and talking about like how he doesn't want to fly. He's always had this fear of flying and he dreams that he's going to die like that. And it's that's the part that that gets me and then when it happens, you're just like, of course, this happened yet it's wild that some of the movie scenes work like that where even when you know it's coming, it doesn't lose any of its impact on us at but even more that like the bigger ones like you're saying, you know the sad thing is coming and you're seeing all of the little. Not Hat tips per se. But like moments of of like freedom where they he the guy, he feels totally safe in his life is in his hands and he's in control and great and you're just like you know he's walking toward that cliff and there's nothing you can do about it at all. I hate it here's the thing that happens to me when I watch movies that I've seen a million times I, watch him again there's always that big moment the big moment for me in La Bamba. Is. There flipping coins to see who's going to be on that plane at the end buddy holly and buddy holly's running it and I just do this every single time I watched it and I'm like I could almost believe that he won't get on the plane. Like I could. Trying real hard to be like, Richie Joe get on the plane this time even though it's a movie I've seen a hundred times. There's an edit on Youtube alternates like. It ending. And they cut the scene. So they show that part of it, I M getting an airplane. The the little line, we can talk about the line and a little bit but then they go straight from that into the scene where Richie walks into the house at Christmas and. That's the end of the movie. Doesn't like chronologically it doesn't make any sense, but absolutely prefer that version tell me about World War Z. I want to know we're wars he from two thousand thirteen directed by Mark Quantum of solace forster, the script by a j Michael Stravinsky famed for his for creating Babylon Five, Matthew, Michael Carnahan, and a bunch of script doctoring by Damon Lindelof and drew Goddard from the novel of the same name by Max Brooks Son of Mel. Brooks. I. Read The book I was a fan of the book absolutely loved the book which is set up as an oral history of this. Great. War between civilization and the ZOMBIES, and a treats Zombie apocalypse as as a global socio political challenge. You know like a like a world war and I really liked that kind of grounded in realism. What would the politicians do? What would the generals do kind of feeling and so I could not win when it was announced that this had been optioned I couldn't wait for it to come out and then maybe like a year before it came out, it was famously delayed. Because he had a Christmas release date, but then they pushed it back and then I started following the the drama because it famously had a lot production drama like they put it all together, the word, the gossip, the Hollywood gossip was that of this is a disaster. This is an absolute disaster for Brad Pitt and plan who've never tried to make this big action movie like this and so. I was rooting for it to eventually get fixed and come out on wondering how they were GonNa fix it, and then it came out and I loved it. I'm just a big fan of Zombie movies. I like that they made it a more grounded about one person and his family, and you've still got all that kind of globe-trotting. You go from created Israel to England or Wales excuse me. There's still that feeling of a vast scope, but it there is really like abrupt tone will shift after they leave. Israel and I think it works. Just, a fan of the Zombie Genre which I've also always kind of felt like is a especially after twenty eight days later, and then the walking dead has always felt like a real metaphor to me for people who want to shoot their neighbors. But it's so saliva. There was there was a vampire thing for a little while right and that was that was you know sexuality and going through puberty. But also like this, this kind of like larger metaphor of the late Twentieth Century early twenty first of about like sexually transmitted disease and what that would mean. Only, vampirism and then when we got the when we got the Zombie thing back right around nine eleven it all of a sudden became it felt like this more of a metaphor for what would happen if all your neighbors and everyone you know just went and became something else to the point that you would need to escape them or fight them. And I and I, find that idea really fascinating and also scary. So I've just always been really interested in in Zambia's and World War I think is is a it's not a listen it's not citizen Kane, but it's a really good action movie. I would much rather watch World War Z. Than Citizen. Kane. This is my pitch when we when they remake citizen Kane, one of the all-time great movies the way you make it better. Running zombies, you just dropped all of a sudden. He's he's in his he's in his his. Castle the middle of California. and. Then, just like zombies run up and just start eating his stomach what what I saw this when I saw this one in the theaters and this is like a like a moment like I wanna go see this movie I really like Zombie movies just like you I especially like the movies where zombies run. That's one of my favorite like scary movie. That's same thing I love things I I. Remember Watching you mentioned twenty eight days. Later I saw that one in a theater to and I know that's not the first. Zombie movie where zombies ran. But that was the first time that I've watched Azzam movie with zombies ran in theater, which is a totally different experience than watching it at home for some reason when I watch it at home, I can run faster than I never think that and then when I see it on the theater screen Mike Oh fuck these guys are are hauling ass ready. You can feel the speed which is there's something like. My cousin Gary would play this game with with our kids the younger kids where he log, ask them questions about animals and Blah Blah Blah, and one of the things he would do as he would always ask them like what how do you? What's the trait you could add to an animal to automatically make it scarier and like turtles are not scary at all. So the one thing you could add to them to make them scary. And the kids are always like Oh fangs or or or clause or whatever. But that's wrong. The answer is speed gave you picture a tortoise as scary but if you talk about a tortoise that can fuck and run thirty miles an hour that's there's something fundamentally terrifying about being chased down by something and that's what that's what's going on here in this movie the the thing that's bullshit to me. Is Intra Sambas thing is the zombies don't get tired which is like if I was in this world and I'm running from the zombies, I'd be like, this is unfair. Getting, hired now. ZOMBIES ARE NOT GETTING tired. How. They get tired I like to make a formal request that every was from here. Going forward. We have the thing that's bullshit category with Jason Conceptual. Bullshit they don't get tired they superdome gets hired like they do on comments I like I really I really really like beyond them just running fast, which is like Oh cool. I saw that in this movie already I really liked that they're just fucking. So Ravenous at their climbing over the top of each other, they're just like going full speed as fast as they can no matter what when they get, they climb up to the top of that wall. They don't even think about it. They just fucking jump their comment they are coming in. There's nothing you can do about it fuck I love this movie. Same here. Lacasse. You GonNa ask you a question before we get moving and this is back to Lebombo because for some reason, I just thought I just thought of this. Did you watching this movie as an as a grown man now? Do you feel bad for Bob at all? Most complicated character in the movie he's he's he's low on the list of the people that I feel bad for right. I was wondering watching it I wonder how Jason is processing this right now how does he feel about this particular character? Yeah. I feel I feel bad for Rosie and I feel bad for Connie, have to bear the brunt of bombs rages. So I don't necessarily feel bad for Bob or I should say he's not like top of my priorities list of people that feel bad for I guess it would be. You know it'd be Connie Rosie Richie who's dead and then Bob best exact order you're right. About with Bob is is just the idea of him not really having the language and they're not being the language like in the in the culture at the time for the things he was going through like what there was. No, there was no like. Alcoholics anonymous or something for no program for him to go into. No, it was just kind of like hope Bob doesn't drink today. You know there was nobody to say to him Bob. This is you're dealing with trauma through alcoholism. Yeah throughout. And here's how we can maybe stop that cycle from happening. It was just kind of hoped he didn't drink and he had a lot of trauma because of you know feeling jealousy about the way. About Richie's relationship with his dad versus his relationship with his dad for his relationship with their mom mom they shared and his ability to reaches dreams versus Ritchie's ability to reach his dreams and he just didn't have an ability to like process and deal with those things and there wasn't anybody around who could like reach for some kind of tool whether it be therapy or an alcoholics anonymous type program to show to him and go. Here's a way that you can maybe help what's happening to. Here's here's a way you can. You can try and heal yourself, and so in that sense I feel bad for him because he was just kind of Adrift Adrift. And he was dealing with his problems in the only way that he could that he knew how which was by drinking a thing that's happening more and more often as I get older. As I'm feeling myself when I'm watching a movie when I'm watching a basketball game when I'm watching anything like I feel myself wanting to be father to whoever it is as on the street I never felt that way about Bob before I have a several uncles that I'm very close with that like raised me growing up and and one of them in particular reminds me bobby is a lot of the same stuff going on a lot of the same sort of internal struggles that push him toward alcoholism and when I would wash his movie before. I would see Bob Onscreen and I'd be like, oh Bob and my uncle these are both like very handsome, very charming, very independent, very likeable guys but also they have this other side to them that just that quick. There's this lurking rage in them and they fly off the handle and I guess because of that when I watched it before I was just like Bob was another one of my uncles like I know this character. You know Bob is probably in his early twenties here. I've got twins who are thirteen they're closer in age to Bob Than I am I'm looking at him and I'm like, I, Kinda want to be a dad same as you I what he's the he's last place in the rankings of people to feel sorry for. But I think like as far as complexity goes he's the most interesting. Carry, you just got so much stuff going on I really really enjoy the scene near the end of the movie where him in Richie get into it when Richie comes home for Christmas they're having a you know Bob is supposed to be he's not drinking anymore. have it out they finally fight and all the rest of the movie. Richie. Who's like he's got he's he's got a nice little bill to him like he's been working physical Labor for a few years at this point like he's got some muscle bulked up and ham and Bob get into it and Ritchie very clearly states as as like a point like on not rosy ow fuck and fuck you up and then he'd like beats them up a little bit. I really liked that part. Of It, I liked that Richie has that that venom in there but when I'm watching it when I watch us in this time I and I wanted to ask you specifically about this Ritchie was wearing that necklace that Bob gave him that they when they went to Mexico together and with the snake necklace and Bob accidentally rips it off and they share this that share this look and Bob Realizes Oh, I'm the big brother he still looks up to me despite all this other stuff. Richie realizes Bob might be kind of a piece of shit. Like they share that moment and then later on when Richie. La Bamba he started preface it by saying, here's a bit of a rattlesnake for you. Yeah, and I'm wondering like a is all of this stuff tied together. Do you think it doesn't feel like that was an accident but you have a better sense of these things than I do i. thought that that was actually a quite a quite an artistic. Turn you know because from all I've read about the life of Ritchie Valens. It didn't seem like he had some kind of premonition that he would die or was. He had always known he was going to die and in plane crash or that he had his talisman that but I thought that. That was a really wonderful way to create this through line throughout the movie of. This kind of feeling of impending doom that just cut off a life so quickly And I thought it really tied those two characters together, Bob and Richie. In such a tragic way because it was really just ricky had a plan more or less any carried out his his career plan pretty much by the numbers Bob kind of. was just kind of going with the flow. He'd go from moment to moment he had. The kind of dalliance with becoming an artist in any in any casted aside and so that idea of of just this one moment of anger in which something happens that you can't take back I find really tragic and really a hatful. Of what if you have an argument with someone or say something mean to someone that you would normally not think about and then that's the last thing you ever say to that person. Thought that that in that sense that was a really just a really heart rending moment and a really interesting plot device that I thought was really useful and they they. They have that phone call later on where they sort of make up and richer reaches out to him and invites him on the road with them and you're like, okay, they're going to be okay. But then it just never happens I think. Bob Has some dark days ahead of after that, he's going he's going going for it s Morales. Morales Bob is I. Think One of the all-time great movie drunks he just hits all the beats that you want a great movie drunk to hit and I think there's an argument to be made that more than just being one of the all time greats I think he might be like the greatest movie drunk. I think I think that's what I'm GONNA do for my list this week. My five things have a thing movie drunks these. These are the these are the five that I think you have to have in this conversation number one we talked about him, San Ras Bob from La Bamba Excellent number two I love this Guy Jackie Chan and the legend of the drunken master my one note on that or not going to say no. But one note on that on that is. Jackie, in that movie, Wong Fei Hong, is not actually I wouldn't call him an alcoholic. He's someone who has to use alcohol in order to access the drunken master style you can't do it. To its fullest extent without being just absolutely hammered but I'm fine with it. I think that's why you have to include him because it's such. An interesting trick is like he's like a utilitarian like a utilitarian drunk like I gotTa do this to get this thing I. think it's Super Super Smart Underneath that person we have Buffalo Mom Jackie Chan legend drunken master, Denzel Washington flight, which is do just that's. JUST THAT'S A. High functioning extremely high functioning fucking landing a plane upside that he has seen within the courtroom is like drunk right now or whatever. Like Oof Guy I this guy has a real problem. Does your top three underneath him kristen wig when she gets drunk on the airplane bridesmaids which is fucking hilarious. Again I feel like that's more situational and that was also because she had pills to she liked through those things together. It's not like she was a spring back whiskey and Xanax live on the radio. It was like I want to take the edge off on this plane and next thing you know she's like barging into first class maybe I should have clarified drunk moments. Okay drunk. But if we are doing the other version number five, we have to have this this character in here. He's like if you're like drawing up a blueprint for what a drunk would be would look like what sound like I think you need the boat captain and jaws who's just back outstanding just exists drumming Acai did is that's Off when when jaws him. got a little bit drunk to like when you chose him on. This. Guy He wanted to eat that guy so bad. Belly on the on the boat and runs this trump and trump and chomping away. Let me add to okay that I think would be good for this. All right I'm GONNA add Jackson main from a star is born oh, that's a good pick because you got to. You got the heart you've got the talent you've got that really complex relationship with his brother and then You've got the heartbreaking knowledge that he knows he's fucked up. He's trying so hard to stop being a mess up, but he can't Abedi ultimately succumbs and it's just and it's heartbreaking and then I finally I guess I would say shooter from Hoosiers who? Who is who I don't understand why coach Dale has him on the sidelines just to draw like maybe he's like the Biz Delic like he was designed defenses or whatever. Chip England is this shooting. At. Him In. Those. To put in there, let's do the first category. Category. Cafeteria table I love it I love it. I love it every week I love it this week where populated our cafeteria table with movies that you not be shown on an airplane seats at the table. La Bamba gets one of the seats World War. Z. is one of the seats that means a four seats left at this particular table. You get to pick two movies not to show on an airplane ever again, I get to pick two movies not shown an airplane ever. Again, you should go first you go first give me one year I pick I'm the I'm going to go for a kind of forgotten movie nine, thousand, nine, hundred, ninety, three's fearless. By Peter, we're a movie about. A Guy Jeff Bridges played by Jeff Bridges who survived a plane crash and then believes. That, he's basically immortal, and then he goes around visiting other people who have been through tragedies. One of them being this woman Carla who lost her baby in that initial plane crash played by Rosie Perez. and. So I'm going to pick Carla from fearless played by Rosie Perez. She was nominated for an Oscar for this role. Awesome awesome movie and Says is. Unbelievable in this like I think that there's kind of a weird. We forget how good Rosie Perez I have not forgotton. There's I. Think there's a little of I. Think we have kind of forgotten that she has the fucking chops because she's so good in this movie. So outstanding, I've never seen her in a movie and Ben. Like. I wish you wasn't in this movie I've only the opposite has happened she should have been in citizen Kane she should play Cain. Honestly they should it until she got here. I feel I feel real dumb. Now because that's a very strong like concepcion pick, we're going to dig through the Rubble here and find the gym I went the opposite direction with my. And this is a dumb movie. It's called the art of self defense. It came last year is dark comedy starring Jesse, Eisenberg. He plays this WIMP who gets attacked by a motorcycle gang. Any decides he doesn't want to be a wimp anymore. So he started taking karate classes and it is very much like if Napoleon dynamite was rated R. that's what they're doing with. This movie and I actually did watch us on an airplane, which is probably why I'm picking it. It's also I know they should not show it on an airplane and if they are going to show, it should at least edited differently because here's what happened. Jason I was on an airplane I'm flying to wherever it was. It was flying I'm sitting in my seat. Enjoying my snacks watching this movie just having a nice little afternoon. Am A big Jesse. Eisenberg. Fan this. He has this energy that's kind of like intimidating but also very alluring lowering that I like. It just feels like he's always thinking he's better than me and I find that wildly attractive. So I like them I like him was on watching this movie and I'm eating my snacks and there's a part where they finish karate class and afterward has time for the cool down and for some reason, one of the guys in the class with no warning at all takes his pants off but not just as pants. Also is underwear. So here I am on a crowded airplane. In a handful of guard data's and suddenly I'm just eighteen inches from my face staring at a at a Dick just right there and I couldn't get it off the screen fast enough. I'm trying to cover it with my hand. I'm trying to like click the little thing on the on the arm rest the contrast down to get the there was nothing I could do I wanna down. What if what if you turn the brightness all the way out and just wash just? The opposite way. But I didn't even want to look around the cabin and the airplane afterward because I felt like somebody saw it and I was scared I was going to make eye contact and just. I'm like Oh. You saw you saw the Dick to right like you got. At that point you gotta you gotTa. You gotta hit pause and then turn to someone and go Jesse Eisenberg's you ever see that. Okay. First of all, I wasn't Jesse Eisenberg's it was just some other giving you just. Read. That's what I meant. The other guys. We took off all his clothes. I think they should show this movie on an airplane. Don't show that no movie where a penis were breasts any sort of nudity should not be on there because it's just it's it's just dangerous territory to be an sitting in a seat by yourself. Rounded potentially by people who should not be watching you watch this thing like I know. Thank you. I'm out. That's amuse worst. Then a plane crash movie on an airplane personally, I would much rather I would much rather sit through that. Here's the thing. I agree with you that it's worse because it's definitely minor although although that's one of those things that's also like. It's not my fault the fucker like I don't know what's in these movies I'm watching. I didn't get a chance to see it in the theater. I'm not like out here hunting for random Dick shots I didn't know. So don't blame me anybody happens me looking over my shoulder why don't you keep your eyes on your screen that said it is it's an uncomfortable situation when that happens I've had to me you have tell me please tiny i. think it might have been like monster's ball or some monsters. You Watch. Billy Bob Thornton, and Halle Berry have sex. Usually. They cut the edited for the that's what I thought, and that's what I was like a hundred percent surprised to see this snake on a plane. And again, that one that one I had before this is this is a good. Let's watch it again but I, but it's not your fault and I will say this you always you accuse me of constantly having a bad pick. Yes I would like to say now you are unilaterally redefining this is. In a way that I feel like set up for you to tell me that I have a bad pick I feel like this is a setup. This is a setup. The only time rules apply are when I can use them again, and then all the other all the rest of it. It's like my only advantage that I have in this particular game. These are the movies we have so far don't show these moves on an airplane world, War Z., La, Bamba, the art of self defense and fearless does the four we've got to we've got two left gear last pick I. Hope it's a bad one I agent Flynn Sam Jackson snakes on a plane. It's a good pick why Pick. It first of all snakes, that's it. Okay. If you're playing, you're scared of snakes you're already a at a high anxiety level because of the sounds and being so close to people and you're breathing farts all the time and you're worried the plane crash now you have to be worried. About stakes, the other thing is and I'll get right to my reason I just want to hang out with Sam Jackson anytime I have a chance to pick Sam Jackson character I will pick him because I love Sam Jackson a say now you're changing the parameters of. This is a plane movie that you don't WanNa watch because of the snakes the. Say You're the reason for picking this is to hang out with SAM A stream is not the reason that we set this category up. This is not the Sam Jackson. Cadillac. You said good pick already so you can't take it back. To delete that Steve. Please go back. and. Delete it. Okay. So these are the ones we have so far we have La Bomba, the artist self-defense. World. War Z. Fearless and snakes on a plane I feel very confident and my last pick I. I do not WanNa Watch on an airplane I, think we need to include it maybe just for legacy reasons alone. Okay. Final Destination I. Love Final Final Destination what a nasty little thriller I love it live love final destination one, two, three, four, eight, five, keep them going you give me all of them remember the one in Three D. Fuck yeah, I see the. Thursday. Screen I used to get such a big kick out of going to watch whatever new final destination with was added come out like you leave the theater and then all of a sudden every single thing around you looks like it wants to kill you and you're like, Oh, my God the there's like Nacho cheese on the floor. By the thing I'M GONNA slip on that, and then this can sign is going to swing down and hit me in the head and I'm GonNa every single thing. You're driving home. You're looking at your computer. This can all. Kill you. I. Really Really liked us, and of course, the first movie it all starts every single thing starts with a group of friends getting kicked off the airplane before take off an explodes in the Air I think we have to have it here same as we had to have it hurts me to say this but I think it's great pick. About. Final destination is I love. There's two people in this that I always thought should have been bigger starts number one devon. Sawa and number two Ali. Larter I will never understand why she was not a huge star I would argue that she's actually the Big Star that we've ever had because there's a movie that she's in with beyond say where she gets in a fistfight with beyond. Saying I think that that's I think that's more valuable than like a winning an Oscar winning the best actress Oscar that happens every year how many people have been in a fistfight with beyond say they would not allow that to happen today you don't think so a two thousand nine's obsessed I don't think you're allowed to like you're not allowed to lay hands. On beyond say in two thousand, Twenty, oh I think it would be I think it'd be an even bigger success right now if that movie came out right now would make four, hundred, million dollars Oh. That's during the pandemic during the pandemic. It's one of those weird things where it was like a little too soon for everybody like too soon for Adri Selbe. Like too soon for beyond say who would have been huge now and again too soon for ladder who I think should had a bigger. I. Really Love when they're when they're fighting and address calls and they stop fighting there run over there fighting for the phone beyond say takes it. She's like I gotta call you back and then fucking ahead butts alley large. This is increase the best movie I've ever seen in my life. Okay. We have the picks Steve. We need one line from each give me one line from final destination. Accidents. Coincidences. Give me one line from the Bomba. Man, to conquer the world and leave me Shit nobody told you throw your life away? From the art of self defense usual chocolate croissant in an orange juice. No I've got a new usual coffee hot black with nothing to eat I hate that movie in one line from World War Z. Guys. I'll be honest with you. I. Don't know of any place back home. It's doing very well give me one line from fearless can't good do you WanNa kill me. And this is not a bad pig, but I just want to hear the music, build it up, Steve, build it up the bad. Give it to me bill. Keeping. Giving the line from snakes on a plane. With these motherfucking snakes on this mother. fucking. I want a bonus I. Want a bonus line. Let me hear beyond saying she's got a call Zelda back to me. I'm going to call you. I love it. I. Love It. This is my favorite five in the. Next category the move I could pull off I ask Shea five questions about his movie. He asks me five questions from my movie. I will go first Shea. Yes. Could you ride a hog by which I mean a low rider motorcycle? I couldn't. I could ride a motorcycle I used to have a motorcycle before the twins were born. That was like a thing that I did was ride a motorcycle is that got? Pulled up and we're like set Mama. I was in an American flag fence. I didn't really down the street. Now I used to I used to have a street bike a little. Suzuki this is back when I was teaching and I thought I was a fucking bad, ass. You pull up into the into the school with with the Suzuki injure. A family. Yeah it was a yeah. I would just pull up in there, but it was it was only a five hundred see. Okay. So the smallest version of this so that it didn't even have like a cool engineer was like we. Saw So. Yeah I. Could I absolutely ride a motorcycle rider hug could you live in a tent faulk? No, no no. No chance. have. You ever slept in a tent before I has. Its. Listen sometimes it's comfortable. Sometimes, it's not but I like the outdoors I'm an outdoorsy kind of kind of see. I I'm not I'm not when we were when we were in the pandemic like maybe a month ago or something right around then the baby wanted to like do a little tent adventure in the backyard. Laremy setup a tent and the two of them slept in there and they had like a great time. You know look out the window, see the stars or whatever. But she like really really enjoyed it and then so like a week or two later she asked me if I want to sleep in the tent with her and guess what would nearly as romantic as you're thinking Kaz fucking hot. And I was just I was just mad the whole time just laying in the in the tent mad that I was in attendance on no vote No. On that one. Did you guys know that you were reenacting seen from a two thousand nineteen best movie parasite the. We didn't. Realize that without. US. Give me give me another one. Could you write a song for a person that loved for your sweetheart? I could write a song for a person I love. But it would not be good with we've talked about this before I don't have any understanding of the way music works are like, what makes a thing? Good. It would rhyme I know it would Ri- well then that's that's your most of the way there. The music part is super easy then three quarters and just play it and then freestyle it i. you know how many I know right now zero courts zero cords at all you can learn three chords in a day. It's really easy. The only time that I can that I can plan a guitar I ask buddy of minded show me this. In High School. The only thing I could plan on the guitar is that Blues Riff that goes Donna. Dad had done and that's all. That's the only one I play, and I can only use one finger to do is i. don't even know if I'm doing it right but that's not going to be a good love song. So like I could be Ghana Hilar- me Donna. They do that in Lebombo to. We have Tyson circles here. coochie find inspiration in a house of evil repute. Famously, Bob Taste. Bob Takes Bob. Takes a Ritchie south of the border and that's where he hears a band playing La Bamba Mexican folk song and he's like, oh, the Baba. Scrape million accords and next thing you know. Two things number one, I could not find anything in a house of ill repute except ill Repu whatever that is, that's all that I'm GonNa find in there if you take me to one of those places number to. Disarm, the Bomba is like a Mexican folklore those back. A hundred years some crazy like that This a thing that we do at weddings you might see it every once in a while still there's like a song that they play where the bride and groom sorted. They do a dance and they tried to is very traditional thing whatever is there is there like a Filipino version of this deal have like a thing that you do at the wedding that you don't see at a at non-filipino weddings they roast pigs It's like a very celebratory thing. Yeah. Like Sean they get a big pig and put it over like a like on a spit just like you'd see in the movies and then a roast it slow roasted over a number of days, and that's a big celebratory thing is getting that pig out it tastes so good skin gets all crispy and. They did that when I first went to the Philippines the first time. When I was a kid they had a big celebration with the pigs and I was like, Oh, I've never I'd never seen just like a whole animal on a spike. The funny thing about this movie La Bamba Lou Diamond Phillips One of one of our great. Celebrities I know that because my mom told me before I ever knew Hulu Diamond Philip was. Forever saw was. Like really knew about this movie she was like Diamond Phillips. Filipino. Movie coming out I was like what I don't know that moment. Movie. Coming? Out. Here's the thing about Filipino moms they will tell you everyone who has at least half Filipino lineage. Anything between a half and above sometimes on. And they'll tell you rob Schneider. Rob Schneider. Yeah. From the hot girl. That Rob Schneider Rob. Schneider. Maybe what about? I had no idea for a lot of I thought I thought Lou? Diamond. Phillips was was Mexican plays him he plays Ritchie. He plays the angel and standing deliver those movies came out like really close together I was like Oh. This is like our greatest actor that we have it's it's it's our greatest of Filipino ally big time ally what about Haley Steinfield from true grit and other things in her music career half Filipino what about that I? Again, my mom shouts to my mom for forgetting done get. For instilling that curriculum have we done my five yet? Are there more because I have mine for you? That give me the five right now. All right. We'll. We'll just jump to that number one. This has got to be no, but you always like are a little more confident in your abilities. Sometimes I. AM could you survive the apocalypse? Does Zombie Apocalypse Zombie Apocalypse specifically? Yes. Well, I, have a machete already. So that'll help hold on hold I think that what? WHO, all, who, fucking are you Jason Voorhees. Jade's it's like a it's like a Filipino short sword. That's like shaped like a machete. My brother got from me for my birthday is taking Filipino martial arts as a couple years ago. Called Sky it's a martial arts style. Six and swords and stuff, and he got sword I. Have It. You just keep on saying like cooler and cooler things right now. I'm ready to chop up some dummies with it. I will say this. So I have asthma. So, depend on I have to go to the CVS. Wars e? I'd have to go to the CVS. Get I have to break in to like the pharmacy and get a whole bunch of albuterol inhalers, and then after not lose my glass. So those are the two big things for me. I think if I could make it two days, I could make it like three months. But I think three months is my absolute ceiling and I think I probably die on the first day like two three hours in. That's what that's what I think would avenue I would definitely die pretty early on those first few hours are the most crucial as like the beginning of a dodgeball game you just gotTa survive that First Wave Aloen ask one more question about the machete and then and then move out. Were you in possession of the machete when you stole the Burrito? No. Again, I feel like. First of all. If you are a police officer, you have to tell me that is the thing that I learned. On the streets you gotTa tell me if you're a copper, it's entrapment and feel like you're trying to entrap me and I just like to say that I'm I'm completely innocent of these charges. If anybody has any evidence they would they would like to set against me then do it and charge me otherwise I am innocent tactically my innocence from the mountaintop and okay. Okay. So the second one that I was Gonna ask seems like this is an obvious. Yes. Sure. You cut off someone's hand if they'd been bitten by Zombie. Yeah. But you have the skills and the weapon I could do it I. You be saving someone's life. So I would one hundred percent do it have. You ever used the machete like in a fight against anybody. Know I jail Oh okay. That's good. So. Yeah. So no I, I've never used a machete in a fight and I probably would never use a machete unified number three. Could you if you suspected that you'd been infected and we're going to turn into his army could you kill yourself right before you turned into a Zombie like what Brad Pitt. Was Willing to do when he got the blood in his mouth and he ran to the edge of the building to like I think I could do it but I would I I would time it real close. I would I would time it. I would time down to that last half second where it's like as I'm jumping off I already don't know because I'm the Zombie I don't know it's bad. I don't know that I'm as. Straight up the Zombie that's falling, how sucky would that be if you like got on the edge and you sneezed and you're like I'm Azzam be. Four seconds to get down. You realized out shit it was just US. These. I. I. couldn't do that one if like family on the run and get bit when the I got a few seconds I'm just like all the guys come here and they got us they got. Married let's all be together. When I was a kid and we'd play hide and seek, and I would get caught and everybody else in the room I get up and they got us. SNITCHING STRUGGLING A. Could you trust your own ideas enough to bet your life on it which is what Brad Pitt has to do at the very end of the movie. When he's in that room, it would have to like it would be. To Bet my life to. Really Great Idea I think I could do it. Yeah. This is like people don't really know this. But when Jason Gallagher and I pitched a NBA desktop bill. Simmons said if it doesn't work out, we will kill you if. If I'm. Ernie it. You are dead. That's why our so excited and you don't. But it will. Good, thing you go. Done it. Could your last one? Could your cell phone die at an inopportune time? Yes. Yes. I wanted to include this one because I wanted to have at least one. Yes. In here but I had no idea about your martial-arts Ninja sort history. So here we are here's here's my philosophy on phones. I don't trust anybody who has over twenty per cent charge on their phone ever. Because those are people those are sociopaths. We don't have anybody in their life that they're talking to they don't they're not connected to the world's therefore their phone has all this charge people who are like eighteen percent, seventy percent I get those people they're talking to their loved ones. They're talking to their friends, their text messaging with people that are in group texts they're tweeting there on instagram. Looking at their friends photographs and they're connected to the world and they understand what's happening and those are the people I trust not anybody who has like a fully charged phone get out of your eighteen percent. Best. That's the spot. That's this as it's a twenty four percent, but it's like listen. It's on the lights on the bubble on the line you go bending the rules again. Ending the rules keep a go next category. Jason Eggs category next category. You introduce this one can get asked Malaysian for what happened here is that okay let's let's do that. Okay. Let me do this. So listen and I'm talking directly to the listeners here not to Jason. Steve can you give me some like music? Like some mood music monroe sentimental somber perhaps. While I talk, that'd be great. Thank you. Listener. This is actually the second time that Jason I recorded this particular episode we did once before and it was great but Jason's audio file got corrupted somehow. So we had to rerecord the episode and that's fine. That happens every. So often it's happened to me before it's part of the process however however, when we recorded the first version of this podcast, I actually for the first time in the history of the connect. Be Jason at the connection contest it took all of my strength and power in Grit. I don't WanNa get I don't WanNa get into whether or not Jason purposely corrupted his audio to try and preserve is unbeaten streak and adding I don't WanNa say that I'm not GonNa say that I would never say that that's when Jason did I have too much integrity to say that Jason Purposely corrupted his audience Ryan. Believes Unbeaten district I, I've never said that I never would frankly listen to reason I'm explaining this to you is because You know if you've listened to this podcast before that, Jason is pretty much unbeatable and the connection contests. He's fucking Jordan in the finals at this ship only by you and. So when Steve Message just said that we had to record this episode again I said to Steve Fine Schorr no problem. I can do that with one exception. I refuse to play the connection contest to. Stop. This is. Stopping stop. beating. Jason and the contest is like fucking hidden a full court shot at the end of basketball game except you're throwing a bowling ball instead of a basketball and the court is like two miles there was no way that I was going to win again. I, knew that. So what you're going to hear for the next few minutes. Is. Actually. The original version that we recorded st was able to salvage some of the audio from Jason's feed resume and use that that's why it might sound a little bit different. Let me say I like to say one thing before we play that I do what you're about to hear ladies and gentlemen PGA is an absolute perversion of justice carried out by Mo Sir Stephen and case Rondo but that's fine I I I shake everyone's hand and I understand that sometimes The deck is completely stacked against. You just have to accept an eye exam. That's number one number two. This idea that it was shays. Outline, I would like to read to you. From our group tax cut the feed. Connor. Player here. Saying at saying that I'm sorry we have to record it again. Now here I am long first of all long because a Shea said something really funny Shay says me neither I think this is all a scam because Jason. Connection contests and then I text. We should use the original audio of the contest. He's lying. We are going gonNA include this in all social media feeds so that the proof can be out there. Lady Audience. Here we go. Are you ready to go? Wrong. I'm winning this one Jason I'm winning this one. I believe I go. This week. Both movies feature characters living in camps settings. Refugee. Camp migrant camps settings both movies have seen where someone speak Spanish and someone else doesn't quite know what they're saying. Ou in both movies, people are drawn by sounds Richie as drawn by the sound of the band practicing. are drawn to the sound of the amplified voice. Already says wretched. Allow it but that's why I love. It barely made that when both movies have scenes where a mom does something above and beyond to help her child. Yet in both movies, the hero is doubted by the people who they are working with. I had that one on their jets and both movies someone rides a motorcycle. Up Get out. Both movies feature heroes that are significantly supported by their families emotionally and or economically. Both movies have scenes where someone drinks alcohol to numb pain. Give it to me. Your. I'm in the game in both movies. The hero has a person who strongly advocates for their skill and talent in World War. Z., it's teary in La Bamba. It's Connie Richie's mom what are you GonNa? Are you GonNa Buzzer? Him, Steve, you look like you WanNa Buzzer him I'm only asking that somewhat similar to parents going above and beyond the call I think it should I think the exact same thing if you're asking me to make this. I think it's well when you can say. Is. Well I think it's I think this is different because. If it's if. That's to stretches stretches got to be out of here stretch exchange I'll give it to him. Both movies have scenes where they traveled to new country. Okay, let's go. I had that as well. Both movies feature scenes set around. Getting set around a breakfast table. Both movies have scenes where someone gets woken up in a less than pleasant way. Yes. Yes. Yeah. He's running out looking. He's wrote out these. Both movies. Both movies feature a civil unrest in an indoor situation Oh my God he's going back to that. Well, there's a riot at the bar, and then there is the whole scene at the supermarket in the beginning of World War Z. both movies have scenes where a dad makes a really bad decision. I'm alive. Yeah. Wow. Watch this he's out watching out. Both. Movies feature scenes in which the hero finds them place in a room with dried bodies and they ended up talking to a mystical person who ends up. Helping realized something in part of. Is He alive You know of course I, I. In Korea they go to the room with all my bodies and then he talks to the CIA guy who's speaking riddles and then Richie wakes up in. My widow, desiccated snakes in the and the carcasses, and then he talks to the snake man. I don't know what else to say Shea like, and then in both cases that character helps them realize something. Both movies have scenes where a guy has a hard time getting his love interest on the telephone. Let's go to. That's good. It's good. In both movies. People get bad news over the radio. That's a legit one both movies have a scene where a person in charge. Let's down someone that was trusting them. When the Guy Kicks the family off the show. and. When when. He's not letting them down letting them back. He's letting them out. He's also Brad out because he thought they were going to let this family stay on the naval boat with them and they end up kicking off I'm good dating who likes Richie down his manager how he doesn't get them in a he doesn't get them in a good a good bus the he goes out that's why he has to get. You think that that's correct. That's a good one. I think that Babo let Richie down absolutely who are you going to call if you if booked on a flight and it's not great, you're GonNa hit up your manager Hey Kenny this is bullshit like they let you down he let them down keep it moving. I hate to do this. In both movies. The hero has to take an emergency plane ride that wasn't scheduled. Both movies have scenes where after having been separated from one another for a bit the man returns to the woman he loves. In both movies. Families have to move in the after the first scenes they have to move to a whole new area. Both movies have scenes where the star unsuccessfully argues against having to get on something that flies. In both movies, the hero, a calls, their loved one only for someone unexpectedly to answer who isn't that loved one I think that counts is what I said earlier both guys have a hard time getting the woman they love on the phone Oh Bang Buzzer Room I already said that way Buzzer. Buzzer buzzer given the BUZZER. Let me. Give them the buzzer fix is in. His In laws bureau it's finally happened. Steve play the music versus Pretoria music he lost on the champion I'm GonNa fuck it live forever. Steve Gimme. GimMe. GimMe Fucking Move Fossa everything Mike touches is all. GimMe Holland No. Yes.

Connect business for you Steve Lemme I wanNA interview you now. Look in the mirror and you will look at. Yourself. And you look at yourself in the is really think. What have I done I've always said you were kind honest man I've always said that you're just smart. You Have A. Good judge of the characteristics and traits humans everywhere. So see I told you. And Jason's GonNa fucking throw about it. I'm not gonNA take. On champions really do the champion mindset is I take. To move on I've never been moved. If I lose for the rest of the season. I, don't care next category. I'm good with it. This category is easiest what it's go. Super Fast Jason. How do you feel about the state of don't show this movie on an airplane movies? Would you watch more of them? Are you good? I absolutely. Especially if as as you did previously expand the category to include movies that have content that you wouldn't you'd feel awkward if someone was looking over your shoulder and watching you watch it. You gotTa have a content like that in movies sometimes and so yeah, I would L-. I. Need more movies that you feel weird about watching on a plane I feel I feel like I don't WanNa Watch any movie where if my kids come walking through the room, I don't have to pause it immediately until I leave like. I give me as many of those as many of those movies as possible next category, special acknowledgments. This is the category where we take details from these films and that we think are notable and then we think are interesting and we blow them up and talk about them say what are you have got a good one I just want to say a shoutout. Whoever it was, who decided not to show the plane crash and La Bamba. What a great what great decision what a great piece of editing I could not have handed it I. Don't I don't WanNa see Richie I. Don't WanNa see just disc- completely innocent and childlike person I. Don't WanNa see him in a panic I, love that the last shall we get him? Before the flashback. Is Him smiling like the other guy buddy holly makes a comment about not needing to worry because sky belongs to the stars and then Richie just sort of in that very rich. You way gives that smile that you talked about earlier and you dislike off this is GonNa be at I I'm so happy that we didn't have to wash they do they do a similar? Version of this and the movie Selena that movie also ends with her dying at the end, her getting a murdered in a hotel or a motel room but they don't show it and I'm so thankful that we don't have to watch that sort of stuff I. Love I love reeling it end right 'cause it would've been very easy to lean into it and like go for the moment but. It's better this way. Shout out that person. especially. I mentioned already that I would need. To find an abuser, all inhaler and I. I could not lose my glasses if his ambi- apocalypse hit, what are the things that you would need because every morning when I wake and I reach for my glasses and occasionally I can't find them I then have to go around the room with my face inch from. Everything, looks like a Blob and looks the same and the thought that runs through my head is. If if society completely collapses and my glasses somebody could just walk right up to me and bought me. I would not even know they were there. I wouldn't see them I just be food I'm right there I'm right there with you the things that I need to I, need my glasses. First of all, I can't see anything without it very much looks like if you go underwater and open your eyes, that's that's what it looks like the thing. Okay we have. We have that same terrible issue my and my final note about this I don't understand why Brad Pitt it. This happens in almost every blonde hair Brad Pitt movie legends. Interview fired we gotta save that theme for later we're GONNA save that same bread that has long hair. If anybody is out there has long hair or was ever had long hair you know this the first thing you're doing when you've got to be physical is you need a hair tie you gotta tie that thing back hair flopping in your face all the time you're fighting zombies I don't understand why Brad, Pitt, very first thing he did when this whole situation popped off Jerry Lane excuse me the UN isn't look for like a hair tie he's in the supermarket he should have. Sexy pack of those rubber bands and Get to work in the middle of the Zombie Apocalypse you want Jerry Lane to fuck and pick up some Baratz does anybody ever? GETS TO THE To the WHO facilities like. Yes I'm more than happy to go into the Zombie labs and inject myself. This is my plan I. Think it could work I. think it could save all of mankind. But before we do that, does anybody have a scrunchy or even a rubber band off a desk I would use I. got my last my last shot out especially acknowledgement shout out the guy during the airplane seen in World War Z. when they're all stacking the bags of all, he hasn't he and he drops one. That's my favorite guy in the home that's got to. That's me. That's WHO I. Because he There's a shot in the backdrops and it's like almost something. Like date night or any comedy movie, He makes the funniest face. I really. This SAMIS I alerted. I think. So they always like do a version of this and every Zombie movie like they make a noise when they're not supposed to make a noise and then like a thing happens, I, think the best time I that I saw this was in a trained. Bussan when designed me like finally gets to bite the Guy through the through the door when they closed all guy you like one little mistake you had gone so far you've been a total fucking bad, ass. and. Then you make one mistake and they get you in our I hate it I I love the thing they do it in every Zombie movie as well like it's like what happens to sagging where there's a fight it gets close quarters all of a sudden but then there's an escape and then all of a sudden the characters like a show like looks at their hand and there's some bite on the hand and Yeh be like, Oh no, what happens now that was fun. Here it is Chez Intro us to our. Final? Category the category, the category of the next. I don't know if I've won. There's one more times than you I'm guessing that I. If I have. Every episode ends with Rodriguez Jason La lobster because I love Michelle Rodriguez. So each week we have to figure out how to connect our movie to Michelle and as few steps as possible I've got a few different ways that I can do this. Should I go I? Should you go I I? I think I have it in one Oh Jesus Christ. Okay. Well then let me let me get my let me put on my blindfolds and get my cigarette just do quick. I honestly don't even care because we have the audio of me winning the other things. So that's great. I have I have three different versions here, but they all the same amount of moves. I'm going to pick the most ridiculous one in hopes that it will sway Steve to Salah winner because Steve Gets to pick the winner and I just want to say Steve. You you look fantastic today before I get started at this I go my God great. Have you been working out your jaw line? That's incredible like I will say this. Are you cutting yourself? What's happening? Okay now I'm I'm throwing complement. Of You all. This is this is this is my connect I'm GonNa go through my Guy Isa Morales who I? Level, he's in this movie called never. Back, down no surrender. The third in the never back down franchise. Michael. Whitest as has taken over and there's a scene in here where he has a press, a press run and Tony Josh shows up and Tony Jaw is just fucking out saying he's he's in the movie as himself and he's there and he's taking pictures with my gye white and Michael. J banks joked his friend and he's like, Oh, he thinks I'm Quinton Rampage Jackson doesn't he talking about? The the very famous black MMA fighter and then she's like, no, he thinks you're Cuba gooding junior and it turns out tony jobs like a giant fan of snow dogs and he just fucking gives them the he gives them the best Swedish. Hug and he says big fan big and I it's it's very touching and very tender. Can we hear that Steve? Can you give me that right now? Can we hear the big fan I love it. That's great. Anyway, there's Tony. Job I love Tony Jazz tonnage is Osso and furious seven which we already news. I'm going crazy movie all the way to an a perfect movie I think should went well, if you're familiar with World War Z., you're familiar with the scene in which Jerry and his family are rescued from the rooftop in New Jersey by a group of. Special. Forces, soldiers. One of them is Matthew Fox now his role was significantly cut. When they did the re shoots, they're supposed to be this whole like Zambia fight that went on in Moscow and then you're supposed to have this other be plot. Matthew Fox like is involved somehow with Jerry Lanes family anyway. Matthew Fox was. Famously, played a Jack and lost. And Michelle Rodriguez and Lucienne lost I'll tell you you could here's what you could have done. You could have done Joey Pants Joe Pantoliano He is a voice in the excellent call of duty black ops to you always got some fucking video. Michelle Rodriguez video game by the way written by a written in part by David Gordon. I really got to play video games. See I'm always trying to. Do it through the stuff that I know. So don't like I don't know that but I know never back down no surrender salvage like. Steve Steve, we need a winner. We need a winner. Are you going to pick the guy who told you to JAL? Haircut. While which one I don't know I don't know which one shape pick you win one connection contest and you just try to Greece me up. That's that's I would love to win another I'm GonNa tell you right now I'm going to do everything you can hit his van mode you can hit then mole right after this. Contest. Right. No that's going to have to be as Jason W on that one. A. I don't care I don't care I wonder if the next Steve Play the celebratory music again, please Jason Guides us out of this podcast. You got you so much. Thank you. Well. That's all for today folks on behalf of myself. Shape the extremely crooked super producer Steve Almond if everyone else at the rigor reopen.

Rock and Roll Heaven: The Day the Music Died - Ritchie Valens

"You're the rock and roll heaven podcast with L.. TJ You dig that baby. Hey guys welcome rock and roll heaven the PODCAST. We talk about the lives careers and deaths of famous musicians. I am your host L. D. along with me for the right as always J. T. Jam sorry you got mold life with a puppy. It's Yeah Puppy Brain adult strength not fun. Oh I'm sorry it happens. The allergy season here is kicking up super super hard and they just cut down all our trees so everything has been kicked up why they cut all the trees down People cutting down trees well. They pruned them. They didn't cut off like they didn't cut the trees off. They pruned all the branches off. Okay and so everything has been kicked up into the Air Erin so I forgive me if I have a little bit of a sniffle or cough. I'm kind of scratchy myself today. A little more Husky ski than normal. Yeah so we kind of hinted at this during the last episode. But we're starting a little special series and and you're gonNA get four episodes this month. Don't get used to it. Not February third was the anniversary of what is called the day the music died. And that is when Richie valluns the big bopper and buddy holly died in a plane crash and so the next three episodes. We're going to be focusing on those guys and the events around their life. So that's the special series that we're doing right now and today we're going to be focusing on the youngest of the Group Ritchie. Alan's I want to say up front. This is probably going to be a a shorter episode. Because Ritchie Valens was only seventeen right. He was really young. This crash actually happened and very near to my hometown in Minnesota Lake. The so I WANNA say. They're playing like the surf ballroom or something like that or near there. We'll get there. Yeah yeah so that like every year they have like a big in our in our bar. anyways in our teeny tiny down they have a They have a big like party like they throw us a little memorial show for it Just at the just the local bar you know. I love local stuff like that. But let's talk about Richie so Richard Steven Valenzuela was professionally known as Ritchie Valens. The Joseph Steven Valenzuela Allen's willow family lived in the San Fernando Valley which is north of Los Angeles. Steve was a tree surgeon by trade. WHO which I'm not sure? Tree resurging is so. It's a guy that knows trees like they diagnosed that like they know in diagnosed like diseases and do trimming and and stuff like that and like okay they. They treat trees excellent. We've had one come to our house before when our Olive Tree was going down. And this one of those those The Lake Sandwich artists. Yeah I thought it was like a fancy name for like a landscaper. No A- Trajan is an actual thing okay. They diagnose and treat diseases and trees. That's very cool But he also dabbled in mining operations. Rations Anne was a horse trainer His young son Richard Stephen was born on May Thirteenth Nineteen Forty one at twelve fifty six. AM So close to being may fourteenth and and County Osteopathic Hospital that they could have named that. Something easier at the time Stephen his wife. Connie you were working in a munitions plant in Saugus which is just north of the San Fernando Valley. Richard's mother conception Connie Valenzuela head ahead already had a son from a previous marriage. Named Robert Morales. who was four years old? At the time. Ritchie's berth. For the first few years the family lived a fairly steady life at thirteen thirty seven Cornell Street in San Fernando in nineteen forty four. The parents divorced which is like at the time. That's that's weird right. Forty four to have the divorce why it wasn't like a thing back then well. No divorce wasn't really back then but I mean it did happen. I know it's kind of like a trailblazer. The thing because not a lot of people got divorced back then so the parents divorced and even moved and bought a house on fillmore street in the nearby coma while cutting moved into a house. Fill more with our older son Robert and her two young daughters Connie and Irma because the house was small. Richie was shuffled off to live with various aunts and uncles and various towns in the upper upper Los Angeles area. So he's a hometown boy. Yeah local guy. Yeah Ritchie's been a great deal of time with his aunt Ernestine and uncle Leila Leila's when he returned to Tacoma as a child Ritchie face many prejudices which were part of the Hispanic life throughout southern California however this area is home to many family groups. Asians African Americans as and white as well as Hispanics like you nineteen forty four nineteen forty five and so yeah. The civil rights movement hasn't even happened yet. So you have to imagine the kind of prejudice this ask face. Well Yeah I mean. Sometimes I feel like it's really not that much different at this point but right now no like we don't get political on the show but Things really changed. So Richie wasn't average student for whom music was a guiding force influenced by Mexican folk songs and popular songs sung by his relatives. His True Love was singing the singing cowboy of the Saturday matinee movies he also listen to country played on the radio with only an average singing voice. Relatives Begin to teach him to play a big Itar at age. Eleven Richie was among the first generations. Rock and rollers have his path described by the music itself rather than its roots and tributaries although he learn Spanish songs on the Secondhand Sears Guitar that he had refurbished in a Woodshop Impo coin as a consequence he got his nickname. Little Richie from the influences of Little Richard his singing style from fats domino buddy holly which would be ironic rock and roll is just starting. It's just in its infancy so you have like kind of the Surf Frock which we talked about with the beach. Boys and Bobby Fuller and things like that and something from Bobby Fuller can hit in this episode We have the third piece. We're getting ahead of ourselves here. Anything Harris cells in a grainy dream sequence that reoccurs throughout the movie La Bomba to Ronin planes firefly over schoolyard where teenagers are playing basketball in slow motion subtly the planes collide exploding and showering the wreckage onto a playground. The the sequence dramatizing event that occurred in nineteen fifty seven at McCoy my junior high school claiming the lives of three students and five crew members and causing dozens of injuries. One of those students agents who developed an intense fear of flying after the accident was retrieve. Alan's irony irony irony. OJ's wait for Ritchie. The very thought of flying was terrifying. Donna Fox the subject of Ritchie Valens. Hit Song Donna recalled. He would have nightmares about flying. He just had a horrible feeler of small planes and plays in general. He indicated that he would never fly. He would just never fly so this horrible. Fear began on January thirty first nineteen fifty seven the day was the funeral Ritchie's grandfather. He admits school that day to attend the funeral service. Shortly after the family returned to the home deafening. The explosion shook the earth when Richie and his older brother Bob Looked into the heavens. They saw plane plummeting from the sky totally engulfed in flames quickly. The family members jumped opt into a car and followed in the general direction of the now Crimson. Sky almost like children's searching for Ramo the family found the wreckage of the doomed aircraft. Ironically the crash site was the playground. Richie school the POKU junior high school. The school ground resembled assembled a battlefield with pieces of contorted burning metal intermixed with playground equipment. The scene created a ghastly paradox of childhood innocence an untimely death horribly. Three students were killed and nine others injured. One of the students that were killed was Richie's best friend. Every Day Ritchie would sit on the same playgrounds playing his guitar while his fellow students would gather around him. He was convinced that if he had not attended his grandfather's funeral he would have been one of the victims lying on pockmarks school. Ground GonNa tell you that story. Shut me up. There's literally nothing scares me more than fine as in like I have to be sedated to get on an airplane I I can't I can't do it and you will. I don't care if I become the biggest star in the world there is no way I would have my own private jet. And there's no way I'd get into a helicopter I don't I don't know I don't have those fears. I've flown so much in my life. That like like it's just part of the stick. I don't know yeah I don't I don't have those fears at all. My sister's gotten really afraid and my Stepdad has. It is terrified but my Stepdad works plane. So I kind of understand a little bit like he knows the things like the little thing that could be off. You know that could take the whole thing down so I understand kind of from his end but like I don't know never has. It's never really freaked. Me Out. Never bothered me at all. Half the time I'm asleep before or even leave as far as like the whole flying thing goes. I've been flying since I was ten and I've never had a good experience agreeance flying because ice. Okay number one. I watched the twilight zone. There's an episode called twenty two. I've seen final destination. I've Seen Barrier Force One. I've seen the dark knight rises. Terrible things happening on airplanes and nightmare. Twenty thousand feet another twilight zone episode and for me. It's just like being escorted into it. Can that has absolutely no reason to be airborne born and you can't see in front of you you can't see behind you can only see out and what you see is just like clouds and other planes and it's Joe It's a nightmare for me. I think it's so relaxing. I love being in the window seats and being able to look at the clouds. And the and the water earth Earth below me and So relaxing to me. No I left Zanex and my husband has thrown a we. We actually even get pre-boarding like special pre-boarding because if I'm not unconscious by the time the plane takes off a panic attack. So I I totally vibe with Richie on on this. He appeared in variety programs and play the guitar for his schoolmates. Lunch break as a part of a shop project when he was thirteen actually made an electric guitar out of scrap wrap lumber and used electric part so like thirteen. He's already building his guitars. How crazy is that? That's awesome. Yeah by the time I am. He entered San Fernando High School. He was playing the guitar at school assemblies and after school parties learning a right handed version of the guitar. Despite the fact that he was left attended which I can only imagine. That's not easy. I Dunno in his junior year. He joined the silhouettes a band named after the song by the raise. And I think Kinda that's Hong No. My mom would have me believe that there was no music made after nineteen eighty one so that was all I listen to. Yeah so oh yeah. So they were the only rock and roll man in the area which is crazy the thing that Poku nine hundred fifty seven fifty eight. This is like like the only band in the area and so they actually became local stars at a January. Nineteen fifty-eight Rent Party held it in American Legion Hall. The ban was tapped opt by part time talent scout. Working for Bob Keane there. He is again the owner of keen records after hearing the tape. Keane decided that he wanted to hear more in. May Nineteen fifty-eight Ritchie actually went to Los Angeles to audition for Bob Kane. At that time Qian's company was in the middle of string of hits with Sam Cook Doc and was looking for talent for his new label. Delphi records day audition. Well enough that keen set up a formal session. Ritchie played an instrumental number on his guitar. Arcane liked it well enough that he actually recorded it as is and ask Richie to make up some lyrics as he went along. So that's neat nine out of high high school yet and you're working with someone who's doing things like producing Bobby Fuller and Sam Cook. So I mean and Sam Cook at the time was hot. Yeah keen soon signed Valenzuela to Delphi records. But not before changing his name to valance. I knew if you put out a record Gordon called him Valenzuela. They wouldn't even listen to it. They would have just thrown it in the trash can. And that was a quote by Bob Kane. The single come on let's go was released locally early. In the summer of Nineteen fifty eight and his name was shortened and so the song actually received a lot of attention in Los Angeles immediately and soon spread throughout the South West in August. Delphi released the record nationally and it eventually sold half a million copies do you know. Did you know come on. Let's go I think so. Yeah come on. Let's go let's go little darling. Yeah Yep that's up. In December nineteen fifty eight. Richie paid a visit to his Alma Mater. Tacoma junior high school in the San Fernando Valley of Southern California. Not much older than the assembled students he had actually turned seventeen previously precisely on May thirteenth. He performed an assortment of his and other songs including his latest single. Double sided Donna and La Bamba which we climb. I'm into the top five by the following February. I do La Bamba and then do you know everybody loves the ball now. It's so much fun album mm-hmm so fun dancing on the couch. You can't dancing so I mean that's a that's a great double side Combo because Donna was a ballad and La Bamba was like the party song and In October after a short tour Valentine's began another recording session Donna. The next round was a ballot that he had written in the flip side was La Bamba so like he went recorded that and that would make the top five and funny enough. What I found was as La Bamba was actually a reworking of a traditional Mexican folk wedding song of the same name? Oh cool and depending getting on the artist from what I understand. Depending on the artist they switch around the lyrics so it can mean a lot of things so there's not one clear translation of what Obama is. That's interesting balanced breakout hit. Donna reached number two on the billboard. Hot One hundred chart the following year becoming valance second highest charting single. Most surprising was the success of the single's B side which was La Bomba. The Woods lyrics were in Spanish. The Anglo audience seemed to look past or didn't in care says author. Tom Waldman Lebombo clumped number three. In the hot one hundred's billboard charts valances time was filled with appearances recording sessions in December. Richie appeared as his high school. For an assembly. In the gym with keen taping at this time valance filmed a cameo for go. Johnny go which was a teen movie because you know at the time those were or like like the teen surfer teen beach movies were like. Yeah Yeah big deal so this is in that same vein. I remember watching him with my grandma really. Yeah like the why thing I told you that the Frankie and Annette movies and that kind of stuff. Yeah and they were super campy happy. But like they were targeted for an elvis movies. And the Elvis movies were like a little bit more of an older body injury. Yeah but yeah like beach blanket Bingo. Oh and all that. Oh Yeah Oh man Annette Funicello I. I feel like we would do an episode on her because she was a mousketeers Qatar and they were required to sing. We could I mean we should. He actually appeared on the Dick Clark Show on December twenty seven and that was in nineteen fifty-eight live from New York City from seven thirty to eight PM. I don't know why that was important to keep in there. But I did also on that show or Jackie Wilson. The crests Jimmy Clayton and the diamonds and Jackie Wilson. Jackie walls love me. Some Jackie Wilson. Jackie Wilson okay. You'll love his lifting me. How yeah? Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah. That's Jackie Wilson. Yeah at that time Richie. The others were also appearing on the low state theater as a part of Allen freeze and we will be doing an episode on him because he is one of the biggest. Dj's Oh yeah it's related. Yes as part of Alan freed ten day holiday show after their performances on the Dick Clark Show Little Theatre Richie and the other performers traveled a few a few city blocks within New York City's Times Square for their nightly review at the loew's state theater so like perform out the door. Get to the next venue you perform out the door get to the next venue. This kid is working it right Kinda got to win. You're just starting your career. Yeah so there was a book and from what I read. This book was the word that kept getting thrown out was kind of sophomoric and well intentioned but not the word. Good who I'm going to read you kind of like a part from that because it devoted this. This book was called land of a thousand dances. which is a song wrong? Okay NA NA NA NA NA NA yeah yeah that's land of thousand appreciate really. That's land of thousand answers All right enough. You're my hood now at this music. Yup well like I say I know the songs if I hear them but I don't really like I don't go out of my way to find them on a regular basis so I have no clue. Oh these are things that have just been burned into my head after years and years and years of you've you know seventeen years of my mother just being like this is the music you're listening to and you like it there. You Go and you know what I'm glad she did. Because there's a lot of great music. There's so much you know like you say it's not that I don't enjoy it. Just don't go out of my way to find it. Yeah Yeah you're GONNA be hard pressed to find someone who will tell you that the saddest song and music history is actually patches by Clarence Carter because I would argue with you on that patches is by Clarence Carter is the saddest song in the world. Fight me because that was just the first time I heard that song. I openly wept and then my mom saw me crying she. She started crying and I saw her crying so I cried harder. He stopped loving her today. Fight me silent World Donna Lewis. Fight me when you're gone cranberries flight man so this book was called land of thousand dances and devoted a detailed chapter two Valentine's as someone partial to coin. And this is the the author of this article speaking and I could not find this person's name because it just said staff so so Mr Staff Person Thank you. So I'm going to read this. As as as someone partial to Pomona. which have you have you been to Pomona fairgrounds? Yeah I was just there like two weekends ago for Blush Gone On. It's not bad. Yeah have a racetrack. Whether Formula One racing. Yeah it really really been to the fairgrounds for like festivals and Fairs. Yeah the big parking big parking lot. I like that I like big parking. Lots and can not lie. I was fascinated to see passing. Mentions that balance had performed at the La County Fair and at the Rainbow Gardens. Both in Pomona and here was. Here's what I I was able to find. I came through the county fair in September. Nineteen fifty-eight this concert took place in building ten. The hut-like structure is now used for children. Friendly Exhibits annacone inactive at fair time unsolicited advice. From Fair officials think about commemorating valance appearance at the fairgrounds. In some way that was a note from the author. So so but I fully agree. You should commemorate something but guess not. Because that's a lot of people that they end up commemorating Yup signed just list off every rock star but maybe like building ten. Because don't they have on the studio's like the one of the Warner Brothers. Years is dedicated to Lucille Ball. They have a few. Yeah like the Big Bang theory stage now that shows done with I know but they still commemorated by naming the building after it in the nineteen fifties rock concerts largely took a cavalcade of stars approach with several acts performing two or all three of their heads because few performance had their own musicians usually the same band would back them all and we actually see that in like the fairground circuit. And if you go back and watch that thing you do they have like the galaxy of stars doing the fairground circuit and so they had a bunch of different acts right performing from like one record label you more bang for your buck back then. Yeah Bruce. Johnson was part of that support at an equally young age of Sixteen Johnson who had been the members of the beach boys and scientists sixty five shared his recollections via an email to the fair in two thousand fifteen Johnson's. He played piano behind balanced several times in the summer from nineteen fifty eight and then in early September at the fair the headliners Johnson said worthy. Kingston Trio Billy Vaughan the teddy bears Johnny Johnny Johnny Cash Jan and Arnie which is actually pre Dan and gene and those guys were kind of the second beach boys so Johnny Dean. Like listen if you don't know catalog well enough. I could play your Jan and Dean Song and you might not be able to tell the difference between them and the beach boys. Johnny Burnette and and the up and coming Ritchie Valens balanced performed two songs. Come on let's go and framed. The tickets for the show were ninety eight cents and and that was the sponsoring radio stations dial position. Kf W. B. A. M. Color Radio Channel Ninety eight Johnson said this is a man who must have kept meticulous notes and posterity is the better for it now. Let's skip ahead. A couple of weeks and Valentine's last Pomona concert took place at Rainbow Gardens. A former Big Ben era dancehall usually used for mostly Latin concerts and rock shows. The date hasn't surfaced but as he spent the holidays in New York. It's likely it's likely. Early December Zimmer Nineteen fifty-eight or early January nineteen fifty-nine. Vicki G. Thomason was there. She was thirteen years old and the Pomona girl attended the concert along with her older sister. Her and best friend specifically Steve Allen's as with the fair concert this one was actually sponsored by Kfi w again pre-owned graph copies of Vallon. Single Donna on one side and the Bombardier the other actually given out at the door. That's cool could you imagine how much that would be worth today a lot. More than ninety eight cents. Uh Yeah Yeah. Tell me where you can like. Get Him for less than a dollar and they give you a record nowhere. Well we know some some of the shows that we do like Joe's or something is Joe's no cover most the time. Yeah most the time every once in a while. If there's like a bigger our banner name or something then they'll have a cover but most of the time it's no cover and then a lot of bands if you put a tip in the bucket. Get then they'll give you a CD FOR FREE NEAT. So at this event Chris Darrow was there too and we actually looked him up and he was with the the nitty gritty dirt band kaleidoscope. So he was actually he would later on become a professional musician and at the time he was a clermont boy and and he was fifteen and he had developed an affinity for the Rock Guitar and Latin Music from living in the mixed race. Arbel Verde Neighborhood Arbel A. A. R. B. O. L.. I guess. He persuaded his protective parents to let him see the concert with his best friend. Roger Pailos both of them were rabid valance valance devotees which is really cool. Because at this point Richie is only like a year older than he is. And they're obsessed with him and I love that it was kind of a pilgrimage. Der recalled in a written reminiscence. That's not my words and that was a copy and paste. You can clearly tell that I was going to say what they just say. Recalled here reminiscences. Not exactly a Linley kind of word it'd be like `member `member the performance at night. We're backed by a house band. Probably the mixtures the opening AC Jan and Arnie which was like I was telling you about Jan and dean. The set ended after one song due to tensions with the band. Darrow said felons the headliner soon took the stage Darrow. Closer eager to take it all in Zo. He was a pretty big guy and loomed onstage stage with graceful power darrow. Said if you've ever seen a picture of Ritchie valance he does not look his age. No he looks much older. Yeah and that's nice and look seventeen. He doesn't he doesn't look bad either. He's got a very very sweet smile was just. He was a big strapping dude. Yeah he it looks like an adult he does not look like a seventeen year old. Yeah I mean I think they just age differently back then. Maybe there was a tenderness and a sweetness about him. Even when he rocked the Houseman knew knew his stuff and did a great job on the song he did. La Bomba and Donna and even played my favorite high tone on the facebook page growing up in Pamona in the nineteen forties fifties and sixties. He's Sylvia Guerrero Padilla wrote is already valance. Having a smoke break. Also seventeen in smoking sixteen and smoking. Don't smoke kids. He was having a smoke break outside the Rainbow Gardens and when I was twelve years old lived across the street from their darrow remembered. Ortho that Valens left right after the show but gee reported that later all the stars were giving Outta autographs in the lobby. And I got Richie to autograph the other side of the record. How sweet is that Nice if we can cruise over to the other side of Kellogg Hill for moment vans actually performed formed January seventeenth at West Covina high school? I know where that is shortly after that came the ill-fated Winter Dance Party tour in the Mid West with Valentine's and the rest traveling by bus through subzero temperatures. The drummer of the band was actually hospitalized with frostbite. That's how cold it was no. I'm out it's cold the suave. Well I mean it says right there subzero temperatures. I mean it's clearly it's northern Midwest in the winter like what do you expect out old. I'm out cold cold old right now. It's like sixty three degrees outside. Eighty noble not cold. Look look at my socks dude. They're fuzzy socks dogs. Because I'm freezing. Right now hang on a second because I was out there it is not cold. I don't even have jacket on today. It's seventy five degrees is not cold. I can't hear you over chattering of my teeth so taking from that Valentine's which we've talked about had a fear of airplanes actually angled angled travel with holly and I'm going to get into more of this later but this is kind of wrapping up the the quote from this guy wants people found out about the plane crash. I think everyone in school was very somber for Awhile Thomasson. She said that she was actually more shaken. By Holly's death Darah was at school when he got the news. I was crushing. I'll l. find myself and cried like a baby. It was the first time I remember crying for someone who had died Ritchie. Valentine buddy holly were like gods to me at the time and could do wrong. It was one of the great losses in in rock and roll history by the end of Nineteen fifty-eight. Valentine quit high school in order to focus on his career which has skyrocketed after his second single Donna climbed number two also also enjoying a good amount of popularity was the singles innovative. flipside La Bamba La Bamba featured some fierce guitar work as well as the thick sound of the Dan Electric Bass which gave the instrument more electric presence than it had previously enjoyed on any other rock and roll disc found was subsequently hailed as one rock 'n roll's teen idols and he hit the road in early nineteen fifty-nine along with buddy. Holly the big bopper Dion the Belmont. S- and Frankie Sato WPRO Frankie sorta sounds like a mob name. Doesn't it really. Does he actually joined this tour on January twenty third and this is called the winter dance party which which was the tour of the upper midwest valid singles. Donna and La Bamba. Were actually moving through the top ten and actually made him the most popular artists on the tour. We're at the moment which is crazy when you think like there's buddy holly there's the big bopper. There's there's the bill monster frankie like but this seventeen year old kid was like the the hero of the hour right well. Because he's he's the new thing in his career is hot you know he's he only had a career for like a year. Nope no. He didn't not even nope. We're going to get to that okay. I actually give the exact amount of time that he was a star billed as the winter. Dance Party. The tour originally was scheduled to hit hit twenty four midwestern cities over the course of three weeks that is so much. Yup that is how many how many shows twenty I four midwestern cities every single day for three weeks. No more than that tastes more than I like tweet. What seven times? Three twenty one. Yeah so. That's more than show a day. Ridiculous sets twenty four cities in three weeks. That's seven times. Threes Twenty one. That is ridiculous. I don't know if our masters correct but it doesn't matter because three weeks and twenty for three weeks in two thousand four mid western cities. Yeah Geez I feel like that's almost criminal. There's only three weeks doesn't seem yeah over the course three weeks. The musicians all shared a single bus. Who's WHO's heater broke? Down several days into the tour worsening. The long drives between each shows by the time the winter dance party rolled into clear Lake Iowa on February second. The Hollywood actually grown tired of the chilly conditions decided to take a plane in order to fly over to the shows next stop and I think another driving force was he didn't have any clothes Are One of the performance. Didn't have any clean clothes. Action do laundry before the next show. So they they thought that that would be the easiest thing was just a grab a flight and just pop over to the next stop. Yep Yep so clear. Lake Iowa is I mean is about sixty eight miles south of Brownsville. An Austin area where I'm from in Minnesota but it they the Sorry the venue. There is currently called the surf ballroom. I don't know if it was called that back. Then I'm I'm not sure it was okay but then they do have Since that was their last show they actually have a dedication wall there to these three performers. Have you ever been there. Yeah I just saw. You're gonNA laugh at me. I went to a Los Lonely boys boys concert there and it was great. They're great performers way. They had they did heaven right. Yeah and then so much more. That was such a good opening winning guitar. F- to a song like it's almost immediately recognizable. It's not even my favorite song or there's I really I'm actually. I'm I'M A fan. I'm a fan of those only only boys. I enjoy their stuff quite a bit. They call themselves the Texans. I like I like them. I think they're great man. The only real song I know by them like could pick it out but yeah different ones really killer so it was on February second nineteen fifty nine that the winter dance ends party arrived in clear Lake Iowa to play a dance at the surf ballroom. So the surf ballroom. It's actually it's kind of an interesting venue and you because it's it seems more like a high school gym then like a normal concert hall like the Staple Center or like a stadium type of concert hall. It's it's Kinda like they're playing the school gym there's a big stage and then a big floor lake AAC. Oh so there's like a flu like standing room. Only are there like seats on the side or think they put seats out but it was like but it wasn't like normal auditorium style seating. It was just kind of there. I can't remember if there was seats or not when I went. But it's just a big floor. It's it's like a high school auditorium so it makes makes sense though because if this is a dance party then yeah you would have it big open floor big open floor. Yeah the heater on the converted bus that he had been traveling. Winging hadn't been working properly for days while the outside temperature was nearly zero on the way to clearlake. The bus actually broke down completely. Buddy Holly who was unhappy. Happy with the travel accommodations arranged a flight of the next stop on a least airplane. These days like the ones that we're living in now. The tour buses have super strict operation regulations and so they barely breakdown. But that wasn't the case in the fifties so holly least a four seat. Beechcraft Bonanza For himself and the band members Waylon Jennings and Tommy also and the big bopper imbalanced actually talked jenning also out of their seats. The singers singers finished up the performance at the surf ballroom. They tried to escape the freezing cold bus with a trip for their next GIG IN MOORHEAD MINNESOTA. Yeah actually he had hired the plane take him to Fargo and then they were just like trick over deacs town because it's there's little airport in Fargo and it's yeah it's not not far in a more head. It's like ten minutes. Yeah so this is where we get into the crazy part. They were actually the two extra seats on the flight. Were were originally. Intended for members of Holly's Band Tommy else and Wailing Jennings which I've previously stated Richie won his seat in in a coin. Toss and the big bopper convinced Jennings to let him have it on the plane because he wasn't feeling well but musician Tommy else doesn't dwell on the coin flip that kept him from taking a plane twenty years ago and this is when this article is written it was at fatal flight that killed rock and Roll Stars Buddy Holly Ritchie Valens and J. AP The big bopper Richardson. And we're going to talk about the big Bopper next week. Yes the toss is recounted in the movie La Bamba which I really really really really wanted to get to see before we did this episode but I ran out of time but I do own it and the buddy holly story so I'll be watching double feature eventually but Luba Diamond Phillips Stars as ballons which I do not think is bad casting at all not at all. Don Phillips is a gym. I love him literally of his name. Lou Diamond Phillips Alyssa mentioned in the movie where the musicians coin to see who would ride on the plane. And who would take the tour bus We flipped a coin. Backstage else up said I put my bag in the station wagon to go to the airport. I went back to the club. Deceive the instruments were loaded on the bus Ritchie Ritchie was signing autographs. And that's when we flip the coin so apparently in the film and I have watched this particular scene in the film they picked it as being next to the airplane and they flip the coin. But there's actually took place somewhere else. So someone's texting me could be my pod partner. Who's sitting next to me? I'm sending you pictures. So yeah so. Apparently it's not as depicted in the movie but of course movie makers take liberties and filmmaking and that would make it more dramatic if they were standing next the plane his both just being in the in the venue a lot of people were standing there I recalled. I flipped he called heads. He got his stuff off the bus and put it in the station. Asian wagon the bus went on to Fargo North Dakota while Valens Holly and the Big Bopper took the small plane to get there quickly and comfortably. The three rockers died with twenty one year old pilot. Roger Peterson when the plane crashed in the Iowa countryside. I thought a lot more about it recently. Since the movie came out the fifty eighty five year old also said I put it out of my mind occasionally when I get on a plane I think about it but I have no fear of flying. I'm not crazy about small planes though if I know the pilot. It's okay day but if I don't go renting plane just to go up when it's your time to go you're going to go also playing guitar in Holly's band when he met valance during the ill-fated tore tour we got to be pretty good buddies on tour awesome said in a telephone interview from his Dallas home. We talked a lot and talked about his mother a lot and he had gotten word that his record sold a million and he was really excited about that. He was a pleasure to work with and he was a good guitar player. He played his own lead on La. Bomba he was young and he was a good singer and he could prove that he it proved that he could write a hit song. He was good enough as an entertainer to have carried the load. He had everything going his way also was a former session musician in Nashville Israel. Also a former session musician in Nashville said the song. La Bamba has remained popular because of its simplicity. People are listening closely. He said then one here. The Song Lyrics Eric's they want to hear the way it was thirty years ago. This made buddy popular because you could hear every word in his song. If you were a country music fan or rock and roll fan you could listen to a song and they would have appealed to everybody. The trend is coming around the nineteen fifties music. People are turning off the heavy metal. Los Lobos recorded the title Song for the movie and it quickly Clichon number one doing better than Valley's original recording which peaked on number two on the billboard charts one month one month after the crash and and I saw the video for this song from Los Lobos. And it's funny because I don't think anyone invited Lou Diamond Philip to the actual music shoot but showed up anyway and so he like stuck around and I guess it was an all night shoot you and so the very last shot of the music video is like the band just kind of playing like the last parts of the song and Lewd Phillips is just like banging away on the side of a box wchs but I do like the music video for the the Los Lobos. It's a good. It's a good version of the song. Another entertainer who was left off the plane was country. Music Star Waylon Jennings. who was is playing in Holly's band? The crickets also who was playing in bands in the Dallas area said that he learned about the crash when the bus arrived in Fargo. North Dakota the day after leaving Iowa. Ele- I walked in to check into the motel rooms. There was a TV there by the checking counter and they had a big picture of the big bopper on the screen and the clerk said that those guys were killed in a plane crash. The road manager. You're walked in and that's how we found now. We walked back to the bus and we told everybody on the bus dion and the Belmont were there. Waylon mothers I was low. I went outside a win inside and called my mom and ask her she had the TV on and she said No. I told her they had me listed on the planet. I Oh my God. Let's see. That was what I was talking about like. You can't always trust the manifest right like you can't early. Reports are the worst reports right. We saw that with Koby we. We played that night. You know the show must go on. I can't I can't imagine. Can you even imagine having to go on after that. nope especially since half the this show is gone. Yeah not just half the show has gone. Four people lost their lives and they were your friends. Yeah well that too also doesn't think about being a footnote but not music history now. Don't dwell on much. He says I'm glad I was there. The timing was important and I was there at the right time but I've done other things. I'm equally proud of like some of the Bob Wills records. The flight was scheduled to depart the Mason City Airport at twelve thirty. AM The pilot was young and only twenty one years old but had four years as of experience unfortunately he was unaware of a weather. Advisory that had been issued before the plane took it. That should be one of your main things that should be. Yeah Yeah that you look up. Always the plane crashed. The plane crashed about five miles from where it took off news. The crash shocked the country. Ritchie was only seventeen when he died even his short career Ritchie recorded numerous hits. That would leave a double mark on the music industry for years to come Tom. In one thousand nine hundred seventy one. Don McLean pin the song. American pie which immortalizes the crash as the day. The music died on February. Third Nineteen fifty nine. Momma said God needed him more than we did. That is so sad. Three great talents were lost that day. The music lives on the family members and tells her stories balance was three months shy of his eighteenth birthday when he was killed. His career was a mere eight months. Walk Geez think about that. Eight months that would suck. It takes longer to have a baby. Yeah eight months. Yeah and he. He accomplished all of this with an eight months and I will talk more about his accomplishments just a bit but like that was the very definition of meteoric nick. This gets me for some reason. This like hurts me. I don't blame you. It just sucks like he just started. Yeah he who imagine what he could have done and he was so young just a baby. Jeez I mean he was taken before he had this opportunity to do so much more so for Mexican American Americans. Valentine's death was a lost opportunity on the road to recognition of their contributions to the American culture but handful of Mexican American bands head. It's national hits in a dozen years that followed and like valance. They use their name to mask their identities. The premier's came from the body of East Los Angeles a Cannibal and head hunters enters too lived in the borrow and picked up the R&B harmonies from their African American neighbors. The question marks in the mysterious had number one hit with ninety sixteen years sung by Rudy Martinez. The son of a migrant filled worker in Michigan Sam the Sham of Sam the sham and the Pharaohs was actually Domingo set of Dallas Texas as Mexican Americans began to rescue their legends and their roots. The Story of Ritchie Valens was brought to life in nineteen one thousand nine hundred eighty seven in a film that was directed by Luis Valdez recognizes the father of Chicano theatre and cinema starring Lou. Diamond Phillips Lebombo with a critical call and commercial success. The title Song Performed by East Los Angeles Los Lobos became a number one hit in both the US and the UK Ritchie. Valens was only seventeen when he died diaper. His legacy was based primarily on. Donna and La Bamba which was popular with the teens. When I should say that Donna is an actual a person you did mention that earlier? Yeah she's an actual person. She's portrayed in the film and her name. Is Donna Ludwig. And she went on to be named Donna Fox. So if you heard the the the the name Donna Fox earlier that's who I was in reference to so they dated for a while while and I think that they broke up just before valentines died make sense. I don't know much about the relationship but Donna is a real person and so at at the time of his death. His hard rocking style was being phased out in favor of teens like Fabian. And Frankie Avalon Valenza imagined and as an early Latino rocker had lasted inspired Los Lobos Freddy Fender. The mid niners Trini Lopez Sunny and a sunglass. La Bama had become the model all the Eisley Brothers nineteen sixty one hit twist and shout valance also inspired the rascals Bob Dylan and rem his untrained voicing guitar style style was the basis for the garage man revolution of the early nineteen sixties in one thousand nine hundred seven. He was the subject of the movie La Bamba and received a star on the Hollywood walk of fame in in nineteen ninety. He only put out three records Ritchie Valens in March nineteen fifty nine and that had come on. Let's go Donna and La Bamba Ritchie. Not which was in October of Nineteen fifty nine which had cry cry cry and then when I talked about before was Bob Keane recorded his school performance formats rape and that was the concert at Coin Junior high which is come on. Let's go Donna. Summertime Blues from beyond the Bomba Rock Little Darling and let's rock and roll. 's TJ likes to say fun facts. Yeah like I was saying. Donna was named after his high school sweetheart. On Ludwig he was one of the performers that was featured on a set of stamps of rock and Blues Legends issued by the US Postal Service in June nineteen ninety-three. He was posthumously inducted into the rock and Roll Hall of fame in two two thousand and one and despite having his most popular hit with La Bamba and adaptation of a Mexican folk song. He did not speak Spanish. Wow Yeah I had a positive like crazy because he had the Latin roots and he was living in southern California and so crazy honestly. There's quite a bit You see this a lot especially around. That era and through to current were a lot of parents like emigrant parents or that had immigrant parents because of the climate at the time. They didn't teach their children their native languages they they. They made sure that they were English. Speaking first and foremost to give them better opportunities and so that they didn't have as much prejudice. Yes it was. There's a scene in American horror story season six. My roanoke nightmare. Laugh if you want. Yes I'm a nerd that a- and you see it in movies all the time but there's a specific scene where Korean family moves into the House and they insist on speaking English within the household right so they don't don't face that kind of prejudiced right. He is mentioned in the song. Life is a rock but the radio rolled me by reunion following his untimely death. He was interred at the San Fernando Mission Cemetery in Mission Hills California fun fact about L. D.. I was actually going to take a small field trip to the cemetery so that I could pay my respects to richie balance and he's also interred with people like Chuck Connors and there was Jane. Wyatt's buried there at vaguely. Eglise buried there. And William Frawley Henry Coordin- is buried there. And he voiced Fred Flintstone. All right and I I do believe that Bob hope is buried there as well. So it's not as prolific as the Hollywood forever cemetery or Fourth Lawn cemetery which Komi Weird but I do you like going to forest lawn and just walking around. It's very peaceful very respectful. And that's kind of where I go to clear. My head is kind of weird though. He's just go wander at a cemetery not to clear your head because it's it's super quiet there and it's I would hope so peaceful and people show respect and there are nearly like people screaming or haven't parties and sometimes I just. I need to go where it's quiet and Joshua trees too far away for me just to be like I'm just gonNA drive out to the middle of the desert and just not hear anyone when it's like a twenty five minute ride to force long fair enough in his short time. Richie actually received many awards. Awards and honors including being inducted into the rock and Roll Hall of fame the Rockabilly Hall of fame the doo-wop Hall of fame and the native American Music Hall of fame and he was also in the Iowa rock and roll hall fame. He is included on the wall of fame at Guitar Center in Hollywood and he had the postage stamp and he was nominated for Grammy for songwriter of the year. For Writing La Bomba Namba. I don't think he won. He has been credited with seventy two movies and TV shows music wise including Greece. The right stuff. My my favorite will my husband's one of my husband's favorite movies. The money pit. He says that I'm shelley long in that. He's Tom Hanks and I fully agree. Okay Okay Hillstreet Blues Quantum Leap and Beverly Hills Nine O.. Two One O.. And it's always sunny in Philadelphia. So here's two facts about about the film La Bomba and one of these will break your heart according to Lou Diamond Phillips in the VH1 documentary behind the music. The day the music died richie balanced sister was on the set of the day. They shot the coin. Hocine when Richie wins the chance to fly on the plane with Buddy Holly. And the big bopper Richie sister began to weep uncontrollably control ably during the shoot. When Phil came over to consoler? She hugged him and sobbed. Why Richie why did you get on that plane? Oh Poor Sissy and I was Actually watched the the final scene from that film and all the comments were just. It's like people saying why didn't you pick tales. Just imagine what could have pigtails. Unfortunately that plane it was going down anyway in whoever was on it was also going to be tragically killed. So yeah you know we lost well. It's the day the music died. I mean we lost a lot of great talent that day. Yeah and so. I don't end on like a completely Downer note. La Bamba was selected elected in two thousand seventeen for preservation in the national film registry by the Library Congress for being culturally historically or statistically significant and and that is part one of our three part series of the day the music died. And I didn't WanNa if you could tell but I'm trying to keep together. I'm very proud of you Mike. I'm not gonNA cry this. I'm not gonNA cry at this. I'M NOT GONNA cry at this outcry later. Exactly this really hard. Because number one he was so young number two I completely identify with his fear of flying and number three. We lost so much talent that day that it it strikes a chord with me and it just it it it hits me hard right also. It's like my personal nightmare so well yeah so this is this is going to be really hard month because literally all the episodes are going to end the same. Everyone in this dies in that plane crash and so I've got like for this month. I just gotTa like hyperfocused and keep together because this is my greatest fear so so thank you guys so much for checking this episode out. Check US out next week. When we're doing the big bopper?

Awesome experience, yeah, no, I went to Waikiki I wanNA see and. Shit early ninety two I swear to. You is putting worse now. It was like Hollywood boulevard on the beach right right like La. Just beach together together. Yeah, and I don't really like I mean it's beautiful. It's a beautiful place, but I rather go to Maui. Yes, then why Kiki, Barbara go back. I got to go to a different island. Because Waikiki is to me. It was in a and I was supposed to be there ten days and we cut our trip short. Amount of here really is. Everything was paid for to everything paid for so we were like cool, but we I agree like it now. The master this. You said that you always wanted to sing around. What age would you say you discover like? This is what I WANNA do now. I was sex okay now. I'm trying to understand that. Six years old I'm thinking you're going to be more. Nasdaq plans six year old. Okay? I have a little boy and he's six so sometimes I look at like. That age when that was like I wanna be a singer, union at. Man. Six years old. Will tell you go back. One of the characters that I remember just singing along to was Barney Barney. Was My homeboy like king again? Yes, the character, the character I would always sing along like I was like the biggest fan of Bharti. Low Key people. Bobby taught me how to sing. And of course like listening to the radio. Cater was like a big thing, too that I remember. And just one day and my mom. Just wasn't. I guess you got into an argument with my dad and. My Younger Omay, other sisters I was like. Let's let's chart my mom as chairman. This do something for a mom. Just because you know when Mexicans are Matt in and you see them cleaning the house. That's when you know. Your mom was pissed and they start cleaning the house so. I was like come on, let's do this is something from it for mom. Selena was like big to at the time. And they're shirts and are we did all this and our little shorts and we went out there like like mom. We got something for you just to make you happy and my mom's like. Alright okay, you know. and. I sing DVD. Bam Bam for her and you know when she hits, I really like high. Know at the end my mom did this. And she's like she was like your face was just like like. WHAT THE HELL! This little girl Ka Sing you know and to me singing was like I just like to sing, and then after that I was like I. WanNa Sing like this is what I WANNA do. I remember my mom asking me to. She's like Maya. I'm like yeah I WANNA do it. She's like okay, and it was like. Okay. She wants to do it. She tell now. She's still supporting with everything growing up. Did you play any top instruments at all I tried? I tried to play the trumpet I didn't work out too well. I was like I was playing. I wasn't playing I was pretending. Didn't now okay so? That you wanted to sing. Now, who would you say? Other than possibly Selena was anybody else that possibly you listen to that. You liked that inspired you. like who who would you play as far as this women? When you were growing up that you like I wish because he like her on her. Blouse always with my mom, so I remember listening to Linda. Ronstadt or while she was a big. A big one that I was like. Wow, beautiful, beautiful voice! Growing listened to what my mom watering at one nita seeing. You know I didn't really. Have like. Things that I listened to on the radio. You know what I mean like. Listen to like NC INC and like backstreet. Listen to that stuff. I was so like into the other stuff that caught my attention like the older stuff. What do you think that was? I think it was always plane at my house. Okay, you know. The the reason why I ask you like that is because today I listened today's music and many of those beat are pretty much done on a laptop and a lot of these singers today. This is what I think is missing. Is the. Passion and the love of the music right you know like. I'm GonNa say something that may offend some people, but I'm GONNA. Go ahead and say it anyways. Take for example beyond say. She's known all over the world okay. But when I ask people. What's the song that she will be remembered for? You know and one guy took him literally like fifteen minutes and he said. Crazy in love. Like. And then even he said, what is that even really a good song? But I said. Now, we're the Mary Wells today where the Linda Ronstadt. Where the Timorese! Where where are the you know Diana Ross or Rita's. We're all those people today. We got people that well. She's got a big ass and you would just US Auto Tom. That's what I think. Music has gone in his saddens me because I grew up like yourself with some beautiful music and I. That's what I liked about your songs because I hear passionate. What's missing today in today's music? Yeah my opinion. People may get upset because I mentioned certain certain. Point example like even arena. I'm not gonNA say she cannot sing. Yeah, but. I mean, is umbrella the best. That's that Asong. mean. There's some songs that they have on their album. where I think kicks ass over Lake. I okay that that should have been on played on the radio. Mean but I do agree on some of the crazy in love like I don't think she has other songs Dan Girls. Wailing, you know she's kicking ass. But Yeah, those are just. I guess it just happened that with music industry. Now you're like okay like. Are You a little wink panel? No not really okay. like I will go to certain little wing bands. And I'm just trying to make a point. Because, this guy is known all over the world very very popular in every rich came eight so i. always ask what's the song they he'll be remembered for, and even they have a hard time. You know see, we could see her name. Two Bucks owns a biggie songs. We can people's albums eighties nineties. Order put today's music just totally changes. I think the direction that you're going in which your music I believe. You're headed in the right direction because I believe that you have an ingredient that's missing today's music. But enough of me. So six years old saying. What happens next. At what point would you say that? Did you start performing a, could you? You mentioned obviously. So six singing seven out in public. I was in TV show. GUANACO causal show. Spanish shows to room. Yeah, okay, so I started singing Mariachi music I before he started singing English. Because my mom. My grandma were like you know you stick to your roots. I was like all right, so I I did the whole like Linda Ron Santo. Leban- Dan Rossio Luca longer. Yeah like all of that. And they're like okay well. Let's put her with her. On a show so I went to the show, and that was like one of the biggest performances. I like on TV. Yeah so that and then of course different church festivals. Events on backyard, but All that at a young at a young age, seven, seventy seven. Would you. Do you remember if you own nervous? I wasn't I wasn't nervous. I was more I was real now I get nervous now. I don't know I mean I don't know I. Just are my head, just you know. As you're a kid, you're like whatever's going got their thing. You know, but now I'm like God. There's so many people out there. As a kid I was like okay. No big deal. Just GonNa, do my thing. I usually short story that I got all the nerves out. The jitters when I started Dj noon dances and my. For thirty minutes and and believe me. I used to pick up the needle like this like. AM was once in a while. My my foot like. I know that feeling all hugging feeling. Yes, so I got rid of all of that in front of maybe one hundred kids. A after like a year or so? When I was twenty one, and I'm skipping a little bit ahead. And I started performing I was always told. Do not look at the crowd. Just go set up return tables. Don't look and one time I did. I honestly new yes. When I picked up my needle in my rapidly. And supposed to. The opera got everything. I would like www. Frequently played off. Yes, yes, but you know what I did. One thing I never I should never do. Drink win a DJ never army till. Bad idea. Doug. Don. And I did. Eat. Those. Okay. I never eat before show for some reason sometimes I'll have like a baby.

You know. Whatever you know and I'm like after the wild like dude I wanNA cry. I don't WanNa. Here's guy so you know it's. It's crazy I've gone to American. Idol and I've gone to the voice and there's. A ton thousands thousands of people. Are you gonNa tell somebody that they can't sing. Majority of the people can't sing and seeing their asses off. You know and they don't make it, but. This is my opinion. I think they had a good story. The people that did you make it to the next level it just that's what they were looking for. Image wise their story not necessarily leaving their voice, you know. The package thing you know. That's why I if I ever did. I just fucking lie. I was an orphan. and. I sang to a broken radio. And I used to get food from the chaplain. Yeah, you know what? What is it almost like that's? Why like Nah I'm good. I'm good, but now. Too so now the pit round. How how did you get voted off well, how did that? It was kind of like American idol. You have to call in and give your vote or you went online and voted Like that, I think text messages to I don't know if it's true I. Don't know I. Don't know how that really works but that's how you got to go to the next round. Would win each. Singles ten grand those. Ten grand in recording CD or something like that. Could do record. I've talked to her and she didn't get her tenure on. Or something happened. It was a big. It went bad or something like that. Some day, maybe it was. Like Dodge Day. Yeah okay, so let us know about your American idol experience. What was that was? was that when I was the i? Ne American OUTTA WAS I. I only went one time. I did just turn think fifteen. Or sixteen I just made it. I was so excited I was like I'M GONNA go? That was like a confidant like Cam and make it. Do. I was devastated. I got and I never went back. I think you just insane well that day or you think you sang well. They just didn't like it. I don't know I don't know probably I just pulling more experience, not that you meet those three people that. Know you go through like Ford F around before. Even see the like the judge is judges. Yeah, same thing with the voice. because she just kind of crazy, because member when? Back. What's the name Simon Cal, who? Member when it was on TV, show people that we're seeing it in front of them could shoot Hale television right, but need the rates to go up exactly for people. Make the you know what I'm saying all them sane. They need those people, so the rates can go up so people. Could you know television like? Bring us in some pantyhose? Yes, it'll make the show. Pool new souls won't make fun of them that they could go home. While, it was an experience, though it was cool, it was a guy we drove out to Arizona. That for that then a lot of people there, too. Yeah, a ton of people there and I auditioned for the voice twice. Huddled up experience. The voice was a little bit different. They seem more organized. Than American, title! And you were put in a room with I WANNA, say like ten other people, and they would call you out, and you'd senior Song Verse Chorus and then you sit back down, and then what's everybody's done singing than whoever I don't even know if they're part of like the show or they're just. I know the producers I don't I. Don't know what they are staff I. Don't now in the liquid. You you come everybody else. Thank you so much for coming out in. Maybe next year like that. Yeah after you sit in line for like hours. But. It gives you a picture of the music industry of everybody that. Wants to sing right right and you get to meet New People and. You hear people that were really good at yeah and I was amazed like Manna girl. The girl or Guy Tom she took singing her ass up didn't make it. Like I kind of. vix was in. Keep certain people out bring certain people in I didn't her focus story. Didn't fit. That's what we're looking for her image. Right now we don't she saying gray, but Jan look good in like you know, and that's looks. At silex it does A. I'll give you a quick story of what am I boys in new? York I'm chilling with me about two years ago. He. Introduced me to his other friend Brenda producers for females. Up to New York. So this guy walks in and talks to my friend. I got dosing man. He goes cheese bad. She's bond as bug and he just kept talking about her looks. And he goes Oh. Yeah, how does she sing eagles? Not, but she got ass like I'm serious medical. Does she sing? I can always pick some auto tone. You know or you know we don't eat long. She lives bad. We can make it work, and it's almost like that's what it is. I had empty magic here and empty magic when I asked him. If you can give this generation of kids, I wanNA make it kind of advice. Would you give him in? He said one of the things that he said. He and I. Don't I'm just paraphrasing? We said record labels are no longer looking for talent anymore. It's almost like they're looking for like a gimmick. Covers basic tattoos. He has a weird haircut. He just Niche D-. He's trending on social media. Let's run with that. Everybody's GonNa hate his ass, but we'll make money. And Stingers. This other stuff at this? Sucks. Yeah, it does because especially when you hear people like. Mary Wells. People like that that pass away broke. you know. We still in their. Songs. Today's music today. We probably wouldn't even be talking about five years from now. You know, but that's that's the state of music today now talking about the state of music. At. What point would you say if I use the word? You decided to take this very serious where now? Your songs are out there. People can listen to them about. And who was the producer you teamed up with? You said just go to the studio this record. WanNa. Release my stuff. So I started thinking English at eleven, and it changed, everything changed over at eleven years old. Not I mean Spanish was still a thing for me, I loved it, but I was like Nah. It's just I can't see myself doing it. You know so, that changed. then. It wouldn't into English. And then I did the whole college thing. And then I joined a band when I joined the band. That's when it I was with them for four years. And then from there. I was like I can't see myself being in a band forever. You know I was like man. To not just myself, but for my son to and then I got the opportunity to link up with Khazal Ochre, and then that was like I gotta do it. What you're Linka Jim. It's been a year last year career. How did you meet him? Oh Man. I met Gazelle through rocky pedia over the I was singing backup for rocky at one of Gazelle shows. And I guess they saw me that I out. And they they like the whole band, so then when Kazan was gonna do another show, they hired, the Bantu's rocky was like. Hey, since she sang backup for me the last time WanNa do it again and I was like sure. Let's do it and that's the opportunity came up after that now with the that may not know who occupied is that is Hispanic and seize your back in the day. Yes, okay, because a lot of people ask for them. They requested from the show. You know and I I re- I met rocky just a couple of times. A day we'll should probably of the last time I saw him in. person was like in the nineties. Guys like in the ninety S. thump records storm records as a matter of fact, I saw him with Bill Walker okay yeah, but that will probably talked. Last time I saw rocky, so if you're watching rocky and much. We're GONNA get you one here soon. because he has a lot of history, he sang a lot of choruses and a lot of the things that people are doing now. He was doing back. Then you know for a long time and as a matter of fact, I know people that are that live in my neighborhood. Is. Again is from Hacienda Heights. Told minutes from my house. So now you hookup Khazal. Tell you what? We're GONNA do. The plan or what was it that interest you go with him and start recording? He told me that Joey can Yoenis who was going to be my producer? So it was like okay and I had heard I just heard about Joey. And it's just crazy. Life happens like that. And I was like man. This guy I before I even knew Joey. I was like man. This guy could frigging sing azoff and I was like an he plays all these instruments to. Kind of amazed so when he told me Joe Wannabe by producer, I was like what okay like it was kind of like a pump thing like all right cool. And he's a writer, so that really encouraged me to be like okay? This is the school. This is a great opportunity. This is something that I wanna do. Not for people to know who joe years, he's from group Yes he's from He's the lead singer from these sears. Yeah, no! Year ago. Let me tell you how I heard them. Okay. Melamine aced meant. It also must be Gone Ryan fighter. I can name all of his songs. He Calls Me Up and he tells me dude. He said I. Think we just started this podcast from September? Okay? Do you gotta get this guide enjoy? The, sears and I was like Oh. What does he sing? Do you just gotta listen to Shit going you to? You'll find it. Blah! Blah! Blah, and I'll be honest to truly blown away. Yeah, and then he goes. This guy plays all the instruments is. What Yeah? Yeah because the last time that I heard anybody play instrumentals, Prince. Okay, you know and I'm a big fan of okay as a matter of fact. So pretty soon. Maybe I'll have a joystick. So I've heard. My homework on him, and as a matter of fact I reached out to but I don't think says we don't follow each other off I. Don't think he was able to read it. But that's another guy that'll let here's will so now you meet him? And how was that knowing that a little nervous when I first met him, I think. I think the same to because you know. You're young. Kids work What is she about you know like? What does he about like I just watch what I see on Youtube. You know so. We got into the studio and we stood hypnotize. He was it was so funny. 'cause I started singing. He had I. Guess You'd never really heard me singing. And, he looked at me. He was like good. Those good. And then from there just. Did the covers were first and when we got into the original stuff It was different. Fell different you know nullum man for this because you have covered songs, and then you have original stone. What do you enjoy doing better of my original stuff? Yeah, I think a doing cover songs is a little. If people get a little, you know. About it. I mean sorry. We're sorry. Living learning you grow from there right so now so you need him. He starts producing. And it's all live instruments at. All instruments, so you go in there and how many song to track within the sports cover songs before you actually went to the original stuff. the. Three okay hypnotize a what can I do and something on your mind. Three! Three. Or songs are available now for people there on Itunes spotify. Check him out on Youtube to. So I was three, and then we got into a new original song now and agree to disagree okay. I heard the Dole saw. Off the. Did you write a Song Germany inputting? That was all joey that was joey. The only thing that at the time he was going through some stuff relationship stuff I was going through some stuff, too, so like all the stuff that he wrote down, he just put it all out. But at the same time I was feeling some type of way the relationship I was in and it just it just worked. It worked. It's crazy. How that happened to and I I didn't even know until after because we talked are like. Yeah, this is how no way this happening to me to. Cells are like going away, wonder. No wonder, it was like cool vibe with because we're going through the same thing. That's a good so so. Are you guys still working to go? Yeah, we're still working together. We finished my album. And, then right now we're going to do another cover. And then hopefully some more original stuff, okay I have two questions that I want to ask, but I'm GonNa wait on on those because. They're pertaining to the cover songs. You know because I know that a lot of cover songs you have to clear conduct where we had a clear samples, right? Yeah I. Get it so now. The regional stuff you say you, you like to to if you will do the register modality to cover songs because I'm certain people feel a certain way now. How were you performing like all these songs of the to perform a lot a lot of these new songs yet or yeah? A lot of the shows Khazal throws I also take my whole set. Okay, Doug couple live stuff to with this whole. covid nineteen nobody was going live so I throw some of my songs on there. To what is the response compared to the cover songs to the original stuff? From people yes. Some people are like man. That's dope and then I get some people who are like that was. Of course, but I mean you can't please everyone you know you can't. You will never be able to please everyone I'm going. Say please don't try yeah, as long as you feel comfortable with a long. You know that it's good and you know what my fans are. GonNa like it. Yeah, there's always going to be. Those people author is sounds like Shit, but I'll tell you. What behind closed doors are probably bumping. Believe me, 'cause when I released my first album. I happy. We'll told me that I did a real shitty job. And I was telling the truth. Why would never thought to be producer anyway? I was just a DJ mix tape guy. Yeah, and that was it after a while or know that and kind of take a back. Want to. Just kind of wanted to put me down for some reason so now. During this whole damn pandemic this Kobe nineteen or corona virus, so we keep changing the name of it. What is one thing? You Miss Doing that you can't do now. Besides seeing the light band really like so when I'm not doing this stuff like my own stuff. I keep busy and I think with other cover bands. And I, have I have a couple of people icing with a champagne ban I sing with bliss band, Sangria sometimes Soto Ban, so shout out to everybody out there. That's keeping you busy. This Day Yeah, so what I'm not doing that. I do the cover stuff. What what the bands all the top forty stuff, so they perform at casinos the. Casinos Rufa Yeah. We should talk forty. Give us a couple of flights wonder marriage in girls A. Group that I with more as champagne, and they do more funk stuff. Yeah so like jeans and. She's fine. Yeah, we're all that yeah. Yeah? No, I missed. I missed de through when we I wasn't singing. The last time I performed was back in March thirteen. And just recently like maybe two weeks ago. I did my first GIG with the band. and. It was so weird of all my Gosh I could understand weird because it's like. When they first up a little bit and able to go into the restaurant and sit down like for example, the one guy told me. And I, said like what am I going to say? We just have to wear masks from there. Like ninety yeah and I'm like it's crazy. What are not just run? At the casinos they have to take. Take your temperature. Which is I get it? You know so you wear your mask and have to walk all the way to the stage, but the stage where I don't have ever been to Pala. Casino Because Sinoe gone my brother Yeah? Well. The stage is on a bar, so you're not even close to. Your seeing so when I'm singing the only time I could take off. My Mask is when I'm singing and then. Put it back on this show. I just chilled on stage. I have to go back on not. Knowing that you just saying recently audience. was there a big crowd of their today? It wasn't too bad. Okay, the reason why I asked that because some people are still scared Oh. Yeah I kind of go out. Yeah, and I think that's what. Like a better words I think that's what missed up this whole. Concerts performance. You know because. You want to do so much, but you can cat. Yeah, you're stuck to going live on facebook with to viewers. I mean get it. It's scary to. It's scary when I when they first called me, they're like WanNa come and see at Paulo's like Oh my God. Do I you know because I. Family I live with family. Have my son to you know so? It was kind of scary to town was. Missing in and I missed house end I've been worked, neither so they will just be cautious. Washer has orga mass carriers. You're hannitized with you, just you know. Don't, do anything stupid. A I want to buy because I rarely ever wear my dad mass really only standards can. I know I know it's a does so now. You said you have an album done. How many songs eight eight okay and win Ken People. You may not have a date, but can we expect it this year? I already out. Really. I didn't know that right here. Memory here got you okay.

So they could either get like a hard copy, or they could download it on itunes. or spotify! Or other, digital platforms. That too, and then, of course, the vinyl came up. This is what recently came out. Was Vinyl and this is. What you say, Vinyl, obviously the two. Thousand has signed a in site. Okay, and we'll their on so agree disagree side a side B is you'll love again. you in love again is actually my grandma song. See. My gramma is a singer slash songwriter back in the day room. Yeah, the this song is very very special to me very special so yeah, back in the day. My migrants from Texas she used to sing with all her brothers and these the hang out. In that makes she got an opportunity to write songs for a blue Mariachi singer. And his group. And she recorded forty five on there, too, with her name and everything. And recently we found the forty five. At the time I wasn't doing really well in Texas, and my mom was going back and forth to take care of her, and my mom said I can't do no more to bring grandma over here to Kelly and. In the mix of moving boxes and making room for her. My mom found the forty fives and then found. Music. That she she wrote out and it was. You'll love again. Yeah, and I mean all schools like notebook paper like the yellow paper again. So my mom was like look like this is what I found. What I I thought it was like grandma must have been like hearing. Somebody saw your town man. This is really good, says like grandma was I. Always say this. Grennell was feeling some type of way when she wrote this. 'cause I was wow, so I took the song to Joey. And I was like listen. It's just lyrics I don't know what the melody is. I don't know also, but it would be cool to get put something together. Because at the time. She was still alive.

Music set up you every range of what we wanted to do. Cut Ask presented her, so we kinda talked it all and I told her okay. So, what do you want to do? And what are you looking at what star you want to get at? And she wanted to do something different. I was talking about well I think for the first time we need to a cover. Go the reason why and then get a cupboard? People know the reason why I wanted to cover it so that people get to know her, and how she saw that song and people recognize that actual. So cool I'd pick and she hypnotized. Okay cool hypnotize. Yeah, that'd be cool Jamaran coup and No Joy was hearings, okay, hypnotize, and during a tiny was very starting to produce some stuff, but he was already working some some music together to get that set set up. One step ahead. We're talking right. That's awesome, so anyways hypnotized. That's cool. Yeah, that'd be good. Let me let me look into it and do it the right because again you mentioned earlier about licensing and doing stuff. Dude I didn't know anything about that, but it had to learn so that song is owned by people. So, I had to turn on and to find who wrote the song and everybody knows the original artists McMahon well. You know what I got to turn around and find who actually owns the writing part of the and I did that and I got help from Iraqi Padilla. He's like. Do you know, go through this channel and you be able to find you information there and I happened to do it until about twenty four hours and find the person that got back to me, worked out the numbers and license tracking, and to get that song out there the J to able to do an actual cover, so we did it in, and it was the best thing for us, and the reason why I wanted to do the cover again like I said I wanted people to know her, and that already know that song kind of see how how she saunder within kind of familiarize song. No, her voice. Percent and and which will be easier for to put out original song kind of played each other, and it worked out man and I told her okay now. We're GONNA. Do the video. So we did the music video and we did it in front of my mom and dad's house in point. There was awesome. We actually have my neighbors I called. Lower your your parking lot so many raiders.

Keeping live music alive is is very important to me. No, just my come from a background of music. My Dad was from a band called impersonations was younger, so I remember growing up the sound. Only sound that feeling and I was like I promised myself. One day I'm going to do something to bring this music. Mariah support everybody out there. Rach on Rab nominee, I play I, love music. And I told you I came from house music playing house too, but. It's always been really special. Because my family, you know my dad and my mom dancing in the living room and stuff like one day joey does a great job. Ben. Limited! Yeah, he definitely mimics that does sound you know and and we just happened to work great. And and that's the reason why they're gonNA. Told you the music that she's missing is one reason why we do the I, m she music group, and keeping that sound note the lions the drums. That's what I want to keep this label and keeping all that music alive and I'm GONNA sell. Would you production do shows? And they often performed the alive, and they see they hear the music, and they can tell me. Mandy skyser are keeping a real. You know awesome you know now. Let me ask you this. Those phone calls where somebody says a man. You got yourself a winger inaugural I. Get it all the time and it's. I'm honored to hear that you know I'm I'm real humble guy and I. Just love when people call in and and the idea, the dream and the goal that had and to see the dream block the way it is. It's awesome. You know what I mean and her between her mother's give me an opportune as well and trustee me, mental Loudini, and and I told her never let her down, and I'm so proud how she's. Grown as an artist, you know what I mean, and and when I hear compliments about it, it's awesome. It's like no as cool you know. She deserves everything she's getting. She worked hard just like all of us. Have you know in? A part of it, you know also. Let me. Give me some advice and if I could do it this way. When I started doing this documentary, I always told my team. I'm not doing this documentary for money. Nobody's ever going to get rich. Not, only do I do it because I love this person, but because I love music, and my belief is you. You release something good. People are gonNA come knocking absolutely the money and the opportunity to come knocking at your door. When people ask me, what is your goal from being a DJ? When I was younger, my thing was like I just love music I just WanNa be. It was never a wannabe fucking rich. I really know my advice to you is don't ever chase money. You really good content like that and money will come. Is True because if you guys are in this, obviously, we all got bills to pay on saying and it wasn't a doubt for me. You know what I mean. She'll she'll tell you i. mean we go throughout? Yeah, definitely. And we don't you know I. Don't encounter with I'd do it for the passion for the music I do it because this is a promising mom. I lost my mom last year, and I told her about the Labor. She was so happy that get it and Should I keep doing? Keep sticking what you love and it will grow, and things will happen, and that's what I'm doing. This is the promise made my mom and I'm going to keep it going and bringing great music you know, and that's one reason why to were bringing out the vinyl because we notice a lot of collectors. And CDs. Give me wrong like you said if you're looking to make a lot of money and to do all this. Guy's got to put your work in. You know what I'm saying. It will happen eventually, but that's not what we came in two minutes about, and that's good with her to they. We all knew we got herself into. We know it all it all come in eventually, and it's all coming in slowly, but surely in it's awesome, but. We come here like okay. I'm going to make this disarray. Want that almost now. We learned that we spend a lot of in CD's lot of see set. We get a single. You know there's A. Goal, but we have learned the industry and people want and the vinyl. You collectors their loved. Collectors and that's what's helping that, so we were happy. Especially all the people that are. That are streaming video. They're looking. That helps a lot as well to. You know I mean so I want to say. Thank you for supporting. That's that's very important to us anyway. We appreciate you guys, but. Okay now. What more other than this record cannot? Can we expect possibly from her? So she's going to be working. She's working on music as we speak. And she just finished a project, which I'm pretty sure we're not gonNA probably wouldn't WanNa talk about that per stucco. Has. She has a project coming out with one of our good friends, and it's.

Thank you so much for checking out my show which comes out every single day still playing a little bit catch up to get back on track. I've been doing these two hour live streams every night on facebook and instagram. And they take up a lot of my time preparing a bunch of new content every day basically instead of writing a trivia night a week I am writing one a day and sometimes I have content to work with sometimes. I'm right now new stuff and it takes time plus gotta do a lot of stuff with the kids around the yard to keep them busy. We had a nice big water balloon. Fight today those water balloons that fill up all at the same time. Highly recommend those. The only pain in the butt is picking up all the pieces once you have exploded all the balloons but still fun nonetheless. I'm trying to get my hands on some of the old school super soaker where you pump them and they sprayed for a while with the pressure. They don't really make them like that anymore. I bet one exploded or something and somebody sued So now when you pump pump and they spray but I want to. I want the pressure so I can la the kids. Can I can pump up the kids. And then they can actually spray them so I think I'm going to try and buy some old ones if I can. If not too expensive like super soaker fifty or one hundred or one fifties or to hundreds got the double barrel. That was so cool. My friend Ron used to have this monster super soaker and you could hook it up to the hose and it would just like auto fill you put the nozzle on the front of it and it would fill super quickly and it was tons of fun so maybe I'll see if it could find that one on Ebay or something.

Universal Orlando Resort - Halloween Horror Nights Full Review - HHN29

"I am Oakland Mouse Chat I'm Lisa and joining the crew we have chatters it gets put up some all Lawrenceville attention and say hi in order to I always have my always go last for highest orange sharpy the last time I thought it was always that order or the insurer the house and I understood our at wor I was good but like the first one I was like once I got down how it worked first time and I was like man I do not want to do this but then I was like I need to do it so I can experience it for me it was just once I got through the first of any topics relating directly to Disney we're going to talk a little bit about universal and also seaworld and I have to be honest during party forward it's pretty much lauren than sharpie and then you but once in a while like on the Lascaux I put you I did you notice that no they can start I have to tell you I I also everyone knows I hate scary I I am the biggest attention to however introduced then it's going to be I try not to step over anybody so good all right all right so is this how it's going to be moving this show I am going to hold my ears because I'm afraid you're afraid of what of what okay I got it I'm I'm okay and then they still scare me not as a like a good I get scared a good to like really the the fifteenth we're coming here I still want an increase oh my gosh okay so I think the fact that they can't touch you take some of the fear away from me so perhaps I'm a little braver no I'm okay going through them and they can jump out at me and once in a while like two or three times in Steve Oh me oh come on come on you know darn well they get you I allow but he you're the best I yeah so I was scared because we we went along time ago for this is time Oh she was awesome as she got so scared constantly like ridiculously out of her mind scared and she issue Lisa and May walking through Shahad Lisa made me go in our nights and I don't even yes years I used to have a chart and I would rotate who got said I yeah like our kids they probably don't even notice like sometimes lauren gets ernest in the entire night they'll get me and that's doing all ten houses My Joy my pleasure or smart pleasure to Helms from watching times amber gets her food I yes plato's allow it's exactly it's coming learned sometimes birth gets her old now of Halloween horror nights yes so it's the best you want to start what do we do we start with terrifying oh my Gosh Louie's like I saw scary movies when I was a kid by myself sometimes at home I was like Oh that was not smart so then I just stopped why because they are awful so I part that's also cool is for people watching because you can see people react so differently getting scared like this one lady was with hate hate hate there's nothing I hate more than go through a remember a couple of years and it might be like more like three or four years ago now when it was everybody does different things like I just Kinda look straight ahead and I don't turn my head laughter right I I try to tunnel vision just straight ahead trying to get through it and I so I don't see the good scared a good two to three times at a house at least even though I understand it for this okay I guess we're starting with Halloween horror lawyer as fun as well because like when Steve gets gotten when he gets scared he just Kinda does an and then he laughs like I made it down main street and you turned around I was gone I was city walk if I'm going to be plus she was so nice and she was in our group and on our tour and like Steve said she was looking for them and then they would just was like like she's doing this whole like looking for clues she was so frantic so it's interesting just everybody's technique of trying to well and I would peak out of the corner us go hoodie she was also you who's trying to scare me from left to right this lady her hearst way of dealing with it was she was constantly looking she would turn left she would turn rights you to look up she turned down Oh good yeah and you they get you so good no matter how many times you've done it they just the best part of the yeah you don't pay attention lady should always gopher what's I mean don't over think it yeah we're just gonNA keep in this in in preview good nuggets I and sometimes she gets him last there's a chart I'm sure somewhere and and can we talk about the mom and dad needed increase but her and she wouldn't just say at she would scream screaming repeatedly like someone was I am literally the I can't even watch I watch a Catalina Watch I know and for me and scary and he kind of cowards the way he's got me he does that was a good one yeah so funny but this lady that was with okay so what are we talking about what we're talking about Orlando Yeah we got some it's it's not as far as we know going to have hacking her made it so much fun and she was with her daughter and her daughter and her daughter was holding her mom's hand it was the mom the mom was holding the daughter's hand and the daughter was pulling the mom through the house and then occasionally the daughter would get ahead of them mom and then the mom would just freeze and not know what to do and they would have to shoo her alone then I would be stuck behind her and then she would just run as fast as she could people to try to get back to her daughter it was it was it was awesome ditching my kids and running for the hills it all every man for the by different scare zones but so they have some of the houses are just like cool to look at they have a ghostbusters house this year so this is the number one aline event in the country yelp it's all it's the twenty twenty ninth h h h n twenty nine Hashtag enough and you look behind the books you can see her walking back and forth it's so cool so the ghostbusters thing is done it's amazing how well it's done and it's scary twenty nine Hashtag in that if you look for if you're looking for photos and videos and stuff you can't really video inside the houses so you're not going to see any that you'll just see people walking around outside as they go through the but anyway but yeah so and you can do there's a lot of different tickets there's forty one days of Halloween horror nights still scares you but it's not as scary as the other ones the Yeti thing or whatever Oh my God but it there's a stranger things last year the AP tour and you can get that standalone or you can get that as part of a group and the R. P. or gets you to the front of all the Y of the ten haunted houses sear guarantees t to see them all I would recommend getting at least the Express Pat Front bars where you can buy drink some they're not included there's a there's also a a place where you start that has food that you start at and then remember correctly it goes from now all the way all the way through Halloween it's basically on your weekends your Friday Saturday Sunday type type of nights you know because people aren't getting oh on any of the past Academy Villain Academy villains which was so good very good the academy's Villain show is the express pass at least gets you in the shorter an express line without the very expensive rip private kind so if you remember the eighties movie it is exhibit a spot on so the whole time you're going through it it's so cool because it's it's like walking through the film and with the RPM at that you go to La Bamba La Bamba the start if you're on the rip tour And then you can see the show like he was above me to the right and then so I wasn't expecting him and then they get right in front of you and I was like Oh and then the other ones that I don't like fight for the event you can get it with an express pass which gets you into a special line for the ten different haunted houses or you can get a R I p tour which is a the rooms I don't like or whether it's like twenty people in the room and you can't tell if they're statues are real people and you have to walk through all of them and there's so many different ways and there's so many things like one time there was like the guy was like in a wall but he was high up a stranger things house and this is the based on season two and three on this year's house and they kind of started at the end of season one I forgot how it starts yes with your thing if you want to fry to see a majority of the houses because some of those lines it depends on the night but on in it was not busy when we were there because it was only the second night that it had been opened but some of those lines can get up to two hours long who go to walk through a house so almost got an option of seeing that or the water show the the the spectacular something history of universal and we opted for academy villains slimy guys there and they're trying to get them in the box and all the Glenn Musters were there right when you walk in you're in the library and you can barely paying attention you see the clusters or or stranger things or they have their own original content houses or they kind of come up with their own like you know they have the universal not my favorite thing that when they have they have some rooms that have you know people that are dolls or you know there's was phenomenal I love it and I hate scary but I love that event it's so much fun and it's it's awesome if you go with someone who really hate who's really gets ALF Situa- if he punched the bad guys you know what they have lord the but the other cool thing they have ten houses and five skiers and this is a Universal Studios Orlando Florida if we they're they're trying to slither inside and then put eggs in you into into human hosts funny ways where they get you where you don't expect it were clowns are doing clown things and then all of a sudden I think depth of fear was good as well Um yeah what you do this what that's the story line and one thing about doing one of the VIP tours is waters are infested with parasitic mouth broaders they soon slither inside the mine and spew acidic eggs upon unwilling human hosts the dead librarian the ghost librarian walking behind the bookcase I knew don't even notice it's very subtle cause you to see the books and then if you if you pay attention of service the pressure is building implosion is imminent the creatures are everywhere there's no escape from your watery grave supposed to be like Steve Saint statues or or dolls or dummies but of course one or two of them so much and they all you're paralyzed with horror as the infected area is dry as the infected are driven to violent Matt you get a you get passes for the rides as well afterwards if you want you have unlimited express pass for the rest of the evening when you're not going through the house and then they take you Mr like Dracula and that was pretty good was phenomenal House with Dracula and the Wolfman the creature from the black I could only post scare zones and skirt zones don't do it justice though now it really doesn't because these are so good and if you can spend some time they sneak behind you when they jump in front of your face and they they they're good and we didn't even hit all the scare zones but I was getting comments they don't repeat they repeated once that was so the all new stranger things it is new because the house is completely palm but you can't deep inside though real quick I'm going to go through the ten houses that are there this year and they do change them every year and off work on Mondays You can buy just a run down some basic ideas on tickets you can get the standard Halloween nine tickets that get you into the park at one of my very wary future will done and then for some reason there's a house that has something to do with Yetis Now the thing scared that was the for me that was the scariest one I don't remember print than last year and it is the longest house this one has like fourteen scenes instead of eight or ten so it's the longest one if you haven't seen yeah I am it's it's also terrifying I spend most of the time hiding behind the pillow for which if you can afford and you WanNa do it recommendation yeah it's it's it's phenomenal if you can do an rip tour and then they take you to if you're not familiar with some of these storylines while they totally going to give you a three minute rundown of what the whole thing is about like with depths of fear either hiding behind the pillow so do you remember the little you are I'm going to read the description quick a deep sea mining company has built an insulated deep in installation deep in the ocean but the Clo whatever they healer clown killer clouds from outer space so they had just a walkout they had a thing last year where they and she loved the clowns so they have their own haunted house this year yeah killer clowns from outer space that was creepy it's pretty funny there's there's a couple of lagoon that was the worst awesome oh my gosh he was he was scare any was going through going through the seaweed yeah he was my one jump they were well it does cover stranger things to end three oh my gosh some of the scenes though are you guys familiar with the movie in the show so to be fair about is this is more than a haunted house other so well done the part that was that was the pitch black part was a little daunting but the they're very well done their intellectual property houses like goes why are you saying it was abominable it was Oh my God I was Oh and then the clowns Brooke loved look like you have no idea and you're in there very close when you walk through them all and you're like not my or there's one right there's one that's pitch-black in oh well crafted fully story boarded yeah and you can actually Char- you can take a tour another one of these twelfth night about no way off oh no way Jose and I get all these comments and one person said Oh yeah I'm in that was mary very cool and you walk in and it looks like the terrifying why do you WanNa do this Laura you should is so good I throw in and you know we throw them in with both feet but that scene with Austin and well Dustin wasn't in that scene it was dirt I can tell you for a fact is literally no way to talk me into it you know I posted a lot during the night and with the other you okay then was kind of scared Universal Monsters Dracula Wolfman It was all cared as an it'll make your night because there's so much nope nor are they got me so good they get every time so real quick stranger things there's a movie called US Jordan Peele it's a Jordan peele movie a lot of these and then he starts shooting the monster across from you and you just you happen into it as it happens so it scares you to death even that way it's really oh lizard friend the dog well he ended up that way no he was democratic but he ate the cat the dogs all of that was very that was the underwater were right here in a submarine that's about to explode and you gotta get out there on the countdown is going on yeah well but it's very well themed James and you can imagine that it the ghost didn't like the teenagers in their graveyard the tutors come in and they social media so they don't have as many characters this year as they did last year but they're all speaking they're speaking lines literally from the movie so even like you might walk through you basically or walking through scenes around affects yeah and they're lip synching that seed and you're just walking through it while it's happening so that's very those are very cool and very well done and sometimes through a ghostbuster scene and they all be slamming the monster and they're they're doing their thing and they're talking and that's the voices yeah it's it's the it's the voices from the movie scare you because you walk into the thing and the scene hasn't started and even though it's a good guy and he's still get startled because he comes out of a corner with a gun from ghostbusters and scenes from stranger things and like like it was in the movie like you're just walking through while the scene happens right so like you might be walking every family lives in two different worlds and the version of the family that lives not in our world wanted to supper breath nightingales blood pit not so good you you will smell a bloodbath and so if you have a weak stomach don't go through this it was weird I mean they're all kind of creepy but the overall feeling on this one is there's like two different worlds that iceberg there's one called House of thousand corpses could be a thousand and one this clown way they had the crab entire horn low clown last year they had a scare zone where you walk through the clowns and they were called the crazy right themselves they they wanted to be in wanted to cut the cord yeah so so they come around with these giant scissors yeah to kind of do away tours like a behind the scenes during the day where they take you through three of them with the lights on and they show you everything and all the details and the talk about how they made them if you're if you're that kind of person that a facebook live destroying the tombs and then they face and they tweet and they they take talk and all that stuff and then they smash off and whatever and and the the graveyard residents can have their way with teenagers doesn't does allow end up well for them there's another one called nightingales blood pit it is oh the fact that this one a lot of these haunted houses have smell kind of one didn't impress me as much as some of the others depth of fear is the one that we talked about with the mouth broaders that one I liked graveyard games that one was kind of cool because that's based on of social media and these kids would go into graveyards play ghost in the graveyard and stuff like that and then there were teenagers that would go in there to scare the little kids that went into play their little kid afraid just as the rain begins to fall recoiling with fear and disgust as the ravenous nightingales feed prior to survive longside gladiators we're just walking around and they were Super Fun and people taking pictures with them this year they have their own son with us they weren't fun with everyone there because we had broken Berkeley's eight so they were high five and loves that there I mean you really have to do it because we took our kids on that our kids weren't really into it but if you were into horror movies or how expect yeah ask favorite they're all your least favorite favorite one more Lorne okay so one more yet I'm scared terror of the Yukon and this one takes that one was good but they're like the twenty century versions of those monsters so there are a lot scarier yes they are they had ghostbusters they had killer clowns from outer space we talked about all the by which we call it the new ride it with the car racing yeah houses and then they have five scare zones they have Zombie land double tap and I did see that one didn't we yes we did oh yeah can you nonstop until the rain returns the nightingales are drawn to the dead and dying you enter the IT and they have three Porta potties and I saw a kid that was hanging around but then the zombies won't let it was funny in the end Rob Zombie hell belly deluxe and this is heavy metal horror Susantha the Roman one yep those Shit Rome has suffered its worst drought in centuries a ruthless emperor has declared the gladiator games will can incorporated into the scene like with the state buff marshmallow man you're gonNA smell marshmallow it's pretty cool and the clown one you smell like cotton candy and cake and so it's good but in Hollywood and your flesh is the canvas and the artists are gonNA slice up yes but with nothing to protect you your history that was my leased the my personal these favorites that was my least favorite as well and it wasn't because of the smell it was because got great music and just raging madness this is this is over I'm used Porta potty and it's funny because they're not real porta-pottys their props and they're there to scare off anyone that tries to use them at uh so in one of my videos this is outside of the mummy and you walk through and the zombies are Kinda like normal people but Zombie this one I wasn't that sound charming so you ready for that way to do that the thing that you need to take away from this if nothing else and this is the the thing yes and the carrot right but they have all the characters they have all the place in Canada and it's super cold in there it's nice it's nice it's snowing and freezing in this haunted house because it's the Yeti she does usually the order is Lauren sharpie and Steve and then you always say hi first and then Sharpie Lauren makes it easy that one's right outside of the minions nor scary too much vanity ball was cool vanity ball was really cool so the premise here is that you're in kids yeah no one takes their kids earlier no kids there but those are the ten different how I was not my thing at all I love that thank so much so you have rides that are open we even do the rise because you're so busy doing other stuff now there was like I can't remember but yes yeah fast and furious Nelson furious over that are Okay Architecture K. Arcade anarchist and like anarchy but anarchy mess you up they may turn you into a whole nother version of a creature it they sculpt you into her and then Vikings on dead I this one didn't do this it's themed very well but not very scared. This was the passageway from La Bamba over yeah it's the fashion Joseph fashion show of ace is the the canvas and so they'll slice you up and and they may the throwback to previous Halloween horror nights and each room is themed so there's a strangers thing room that looks amazing and then they're strangers things merchandise and then you you go through like a passageway and you go into another room and then there's that merchandise from ghostbusters and it's the and then they have like a tribute store word of the Animal Those cool vikings that are dead and they do yes it's like a throwback shop it's got four it's it's called something like that I can't remember the name of it but it's it's it's after you do Viking things they do but Halloween horror nights it's awesome really yeah it is really good for me to you know and I again only hard I saw jar you gotta go take you we're GonNa go on the twenty second going again going again in eleven days to they have they have they have the scene where he's eating the cat case you in case you missed it in so it's based on a a sinister eighties the teaming of it is cool the scare factor of it was was lackey for me but it was it's like Rodney I walk in the park doc good music it didn't have the music it had good it was good teaming good sides good fashion show music going on there when you talk me into that one you just close your eyes and plug yours be fine we'll see Eddie's were massive yeah they are they're huge I would love to do the tribe's store the throwback yes so the store and there there's a like places that you can take really good instagram photos in their social media photos there's lots of Gorgan slide a five minute wait for the mummy and he wouldn't let me do it not reading that right and they have a cool shortage of a cool shop to they do they have like a mummy lots of props and lots of things as you're going through the store that you can pose with for photos that's super cool so it's a neat experience just to go through the store I think it's a erode back I think it's current stuff it's true you're right yes they have the clowns and they have stranger things the monsters so I think it's all current Hey grids you wanna change the subject Lauren right no I am under the desk right now so good minutes we didn't see anything lower than that and that was near the end of the night but it wasn't unusual to see or five or fifty five minutes on some of the house you don't necessarily have to do an rip tour but know that they have a private rip tour as well as a non-private says which is which is good compared to last year they were terrible compared to last year when we went closer I guess I don't know why but it where you would share the tour guide with other people and save some money but you're still going to see all ten houses and all five scare zones so there are so many options this year Roenick the the wait times that we saw when we were there a lot of them were double digit wait times which was as low as thirty you you might not see very many houses in on the night and you might be standing along lines that's the the rub now but she would never go in person let me tell I wouldn't even listen to that I'm literally under the desk for this let me take you're you can get a pass for all of September and it's if you go twice you've covered your head so there are lots of different Pass options with Halloween horror nights now you weren't Lauren and you talk about is only the second day that they were open for Halloween horror nights so they will definitely go up in which case I don't think I would do Halloween horror nights without an express pass I I don't know I can't imagine anybody goes out of there and doesn't have a good time unless you the difficulty is if you get the regular ticket and you don't plan at right and and they have not only everywhere get scared and wet your pants you can also buy really cool merchandise super cool sharpton something for everyone everybody for more and you want to go in there it's deal so look into that ask well ask Sharpie and Lauren about it they'll tell you all about it they can look it up ninety seconds to talk about academy villains altered states because this show was so phenomenal in my opinion the the show can it was another guy that did soccer like a soccer ball and he he did a dance with it it was not like rhythmic gymnastics an ice I would never go why did Jesse had Jesse listened to the Halloween Horror podcast howling horror nights podcast we had the best seat in the House we're dead center as as close to the stages you can get in the center lists of a lot of dancers and the dancers and their synchronicity and their their enthusiasm and their it's scary yes local you can buy a pass and more than once yeah or if you plan on going four five nights and you wanted to spend a few hours each night may be conquer two houses it out yeah you can spread it out you can do that yeah it's like being able to go to Mickey's not so scary multiple times and just hit the things you want the they just hit every little move it was phenomenal America's got talent a couple years back so you might remember them from and they have a platform that they put into the audience where the the different performance come up so we ha we could see the pores on their face so good and then they have like three highlight acts one was like the the ropes that hang not ropes but the cloths or they call it show with unique dancing and unique acts and high energy was kind of Dr Jekyll Mr Hyde type of thing where they larne would be in was crazy it was a lot longer but I'm sure those times are going to go way up yeah yeah the closer we get to Halloween the longer those times are going to get but he could bounce it off of everywhere in catch it and toss it and he just manipulated that ball like nobody's business but then there was one guy and it was cool because number somewhere for the whole for the whole month past the entire month yeah it was crazy yeah it's a it's a good deal if you can if you're going to be there more than two nights org take advantage of the fact that no one's on the ride

Pop Culture Affidavit Episode 94: The Day the Music Died

"Even ninety four the day. The music died. Never. Me down. Hello. And welcome to episode ninety four of pop culture. Affidavit the podcast takes a look at everything random in the world of popular culture. Which is brought to you by the chew true freaks internet radio network. I'm your host, Tom panoramas. Well, this episode is dropping on February third twenty nineteen for the first time in a while probably since I did my breakfast club. I am correctly celebrating anniversary sixty years ago today clean carrying rock musicians, buddy. Holly Ritchie Valens and the big Bopper crashed near clear lake Iowa all three who had been Torrington west that the time or killed in the crash, and it was one of the first Greek tragedies of rock and roll. Now, I have course was not alive back. Then. In fact, my dad would have been fourteen in my mom would have been twelve and they wouldn't meet for a number of years. So why focusing on this event of even if it doesn't apply to me, let alone my entire generation? Well, it side from it being a big anniversary and popular culture. Some of this music actually did have. An impact on me when I was a kid and the premature death of an artist at a young age is something that unfortunately, just about every generation from the baby boomer's on down can relate to go to talk about what I know. And what I like about those three artists, and I will cover the event of that day by taking a look at the specific episode of each one's documentary series behind the music that covered the day the music died on February third nineteen ninety nine. Plus, I'm also gonna talk about the sun. They gave the event it's well no name in that is Don mclean's nineteen seventy-one hit American pie. So I would say that the beginning of the story would be nineteen fifty six which is when buddy Holly and the crickets began recording and releasing songs, but actually gonna start by fast forwarding, thirty years from them to nineteen eighty six and the soundtrack to the movie stand by me a cover this movie a couple of years ago with Michael Bailey, and we spent a considerable amount of time talking about the soundtrack. Which has a great selection of songs from the fifties and kicks off with every day, which was the besides the band's hit Peggy sue. Every day. Again, closer go. Dues. Getting fast. Said go. Like give to come. This is my very first exposure to buddy Holly, at least as far as I can remember I may Verdy heard a number of his songs at that point though. Because one of the stations that my mom, listen to the Karna regular basis was New York only station CBS wanna one I'm sure that some people listening to this or not in their heads along to that CBS wanna one for years was New York's oldie station and even during my years of pretending to be cool emphasis on the word pretending because I was never ever cool. I did love listening to cousin Brucie and would even catch his show on Sirius satellite radio for a number of years. I probably need this point elsewhere, but CBS wanna one and later on other stations like WD a B one or two point three which is the classic rock station. I listened to through most of high school were really my kind of rocket Gatien this. This is what I listened to all the time. In fact, I could probably do a whole mix tape type of just on radio stations. I did listen to back in junior high and high school and maybe one day I will. For now, I'm going to stick with one a one which along with the soundtracks to movies like stand by me and dirty dancing and the big chill were my introduction to my parents generation's music, and there was this. Big revival in newfound interest in stuff from the nineteen fifties and sixties during the eighties. I mean, I guess you could say technically started all with back in the early seventies with American graffiti carried on with happy days, and it never really stopped. But from the nineteen fifties related time travel flicks. Like back to the future and Peggy sue got married. Two movies that actually took place in that era like stand by me and dirty dancing. And then later shows that took place in the sixties such as the wonder years you had kids and teenagers getting into what their parents were listening to so much of what was in those movies and on those soundtracks are intertwined with an era that is now. Well, it's now the nineteen fifties to my son's twenty tens. I don't think he thinks the eighties that way, especially considering how much he loves listening to thriller era. Mike. Phil Jackson, but I did want you at least acknowledge how old I'm getting. And I mentioned the movies because while I didn't get to nobody Holly through a movie, I did get to know Richie Valance through the nineteen eighty-seven bio pic, LA Bamba. I saw this movie in New Hampshire back in August of nineteen eighty-seven. It was the first time. My parents had rented the cabin that. They've been renting every summer since. I remember that we drove all the way to Hanover to go see Lebombo at a movie theater there or the movie there might have been in Lebanon. Anyway, I think this particular towns like right next to each other. But seriously, I had wanted to see it merely because when my friend, Tom, and I would watch MTV at his house. We would see the video for the loss. Logos version of LA Bamba as well as commercials for the movie, really almost constantly. I'll talk a little bit about that little slow song in a moment. First. I wanna talk about what I do remember from the movie because it was it's been slightly more than thirty years since I watched it Lou diamond Phillips plays achieve Allen's in the stories about how Valance was a star on the rise was a Chicano artists working in a system those not friendly to non white ax, especially anybody who is Hispanic Latino Takao. I know there's a storyline about his relationship with a girl named Donna about whom he wrote one of his biggest hits. The. And the film ends with the events of the night of February third along with the supporting cast reactions to the news of his death. I remember liking the film, even though I don't think I fully understood everything about it and might go and rewatch it at some point, the music was pretty awesome. Although I think that most of it was via covers because the soundtrack has songs by Los Lobos Marshall Crenshaw who plead buddy Holly in the film, and Brian Setzer, the lowest level sung, in fact, was a number one hit for the band in nineteen eighty seven at one of video musical word for best video from a film. It's a pretty faithful cover of the rich Valentine regime, which itself was a rock version of Mexican folk song, although loveless had the shine of nineteen eighties era production team behind them. But what makes the song transcended source material is the ending which is this incredible to Qatar solo sometimes radio stations would edit it out of when they played the song would fade out. Quickly. But if you got to hear the whole version, you're treated to some serious musicianship. In fact, I'm gonna take out with that outer because it's just so great. And really that is my origin story with buddy Holly and Ritchie Valance and sadly beyond the Hulu from the beginning of his song. Chantilly lace. I really wasn't familiar with the big Bopper as a kid. Well, it did listen to symbol these often on through the nineties. I really wouldn't learn any everything behind these artists deaths until watching it up Assode of behind the music in nineteen ninety nine and be back with that. After this. Primarily as singer.

In nineteen ninety nine on the occasion of the fortieth anniversary of the crash VH1. produced episode of their one hour rock UNLV series behind the music, and if you're around the late nineteen ninety s early two thousands, you probably remember one of what was eventually two hundred forty four episodes of this show as well as its narrator, Jim Forbes, and it's urgent sounding introduction music. The idea of the shows to bring to light the back stories of a number of important people in the history of pop or other well known events or years or things this included acts that we're making a comeback at the time that often coincided with the release of a comeback album or anniversary tour, but there were also were infamous acts or events, for instance, the first two episodes were about Milli Vanilli, leeann MC hammer, very often. There was a shot of someone walking solemnly along the beach or something the day the music died was one of a number of event focused episodes, others of which included Woodstock studio. Fifty four at a number of significant years in music history. Such as nineteen sixty eight nineteen seventy nine hundred seventy seven nineteen Eighty-four nineteen eighty-seven nineteen Ninety-two nineteen ninety four and two thousand. Our episode opens with a prologue typical of many episodes, which is a summary of the central event. And after being told that we'll be learning about the day. The music died through interviews with people close to the three artists home movies and our IVA footage. We jumped to the night before and the performance at the surf ballroom in clearly I wha before heading back to the early days of rock and roll and the beginning of buddy Holly's career, which was the first of the three to really get going because when the big Bopper which values were on tour nineteen Fifty-nine there stars were very much on the rise Holly and his band, the crickets released their first single that'll be the day in September of nineteen fifty seven, and then they had a huge hit with Peggy sue which is written about his drummer's girlfriend. Pacey Garin is interviewed as well as Nikki Sullivan who is one of the original Atari for the crickets along with other people who were in the band Hollywood formed after the crickets broke up post their nineteen fifty seven tour, including Tommy also. And Waylon Jennings. Polly himself had a pretty quick rise to fame. But as I mentioned the crickets had disbanded by nineteen fifty eight because other band members found touring to be to grueling and Holly moved to New York to pursue opportunities. But his career did begin to stall. This is what led him to be one of the acts on the tour that was called the winter dance party. I'll talk a little more about that later. But I what I'm going to do is get to talking about the Baxter's of the other two rockers, which is what the show also did. JP Richardson also known as the big Bopper was discharged. He grew up poor and orderly had a family in nineteen fifty eight soon order to support them. He began recording novelty songs. One of them was called the purple people eater meets the witch. Doctor the B side of that was a song called chantilly lace. No way. Yeah. This is the big big. All week. Do one. Will. What? Chantilly? You're probably familiar with this one to some extent. It's got one of the most famous openings and rock and roll. It was needless to say a huge hit for the Bopper and he signed up for the tour nineteen Fifty-eight in order to promote the song knowing that this would set his family up. Well, here it had a daughter and his wife was pregnant with a boy the money. He was going to earn from world from the tour would go to recording studio he was building. So the bumper had plans to be producer in Texas instead of being -sition on the road. Also on the rise was seventeen year old Richie Valance who when the plane crashed in February nineteen Fifty-nine had only been around for eight months as signed recording artist. He also had a poor upbringing. But songs such as come on. Let's go Donna and LA Bamba made him star quickly, and he even made enough money to buy his mother a house. The winner dance party was going to be his first, huge tore. I mentioned that the producers of behind the music interviewed a number of people associated with buddy, Holly. But also in his deepest possible with people associated with the other artists as well as the concert and the tour the included Bob HALE who was the former DJ who's one of the people who is in clear like I will working promotion for local radio station and broke the news over the Airways that the three had died. Donna Ludwig, FOX tischler, Donna JP, or Jay Richardson, the big Bopper son, which he Valance sister and his aunt Carol Anderson who was the manager of the surf ballroom and both Gary BC, and Lou diamond Phillips who played buddy Holly and Ritchie Valens on Phil. And for what is really just a basic cable show that probably didn't have an enormous production budget. It's a pretty tightly produced show with pretty deep dive into the history of this event. I'm sure that they could have just taken the cheap way out by or the easy way out by using. Ng archival footage that existed still performance shop. At addition to the interviews with family members. They show were obviously private home movies that had rarely if ever been seen. It gave me the impression that whoever was in charges particular episode really did care about what they were producing the rest of the show focuses on the winter dance party tour and the actual night of February second to February third nineteen fifty nine the tour was of most of the mid west than it involved travelling by bus through what was an incredibly long cold winter. Moreover, the tore it self was a pretty tear, it was pretty terribly arranged instead of going through the various regions of states of the mid west kind of an order, the tour organizer had the bus zigzagging from place to place and that meant for longer trips and pretty low morale among the performers in fact, clearly Iowa's not even originally on the schedule. They had an open date in the surf ballroom wound up being booked. When they arrived in clearlake, buddy. Holly who is tired of riding buses and wanted time to rest as pointed out in the documentary, do his laundry and otherwise recuperate chartered a plane for himself and his band, which is Tommy else up and Waylon Jennings to fly to Fargo North Dakota for the next show after they finish the show at the surf ballroom that show according to Bob HALE, the surf ballroom show was completely sold out. And despite the musicians fatigue from the road. It was outstanding. They then headed to the airfield around midnight. And in the story that's become pretty well known by now Valance in the Bopper found their way onto the plane instead of Alison Jennings Jennings. Switch places with the big Bopper who was coming down with the flu and thought the prospect of a long bus ride would make things worse. Also, flip the coin with Valance, and he lost the coin toss famously Holly joked Jennings said he hoped his bus broke down and Jennings. Toured will I hope you plane crashes something that he said was. Obviously meant to his joke back then but did haunt him for years. The plane got off the ground, but was flying into a snowstorm and really should have never taken off. But the pilot whose name is Roger Peterson never got the US weather services weather advisory the plane then crashed about five miles north west of the airport killing Peterson and all three musicians. Peterson was killed in the cockpit. But the other three were thrown from the plane. Now, I could have gotten all of this from Wikipedia because there is a pretty extensive entry on the day the music died, but it used this as my source of information this behind the music special for three reasons, I while I knew the buddy Holly Ritchie Valance and the big Bopper had died in a plane crash. This is how I really learned about them. And what exactly happened that night second? As I said earlier, it's a nice concise. Forty five to fifty minutes show third. It's comes after the discussion of the plane crash. That makes this worth viewing the people who were interviewed talk about how they found out that the three of them had died or how the families found out which wasn't exactly directly. Nikki sullivan. The former crickets guitarist had called Holly's mother to see how she was handling the news, and he actually wound up breaking it to her. She hadn't heard already Donna found out from a classmate Holly's wife who was pregnant had. Miscarried her baby about three months after the crash, and Jay Richardson who was born shortly after the crash happen never knew his father growing up the other mission musicians. Didn't find out the ones in the bus didn't find out until the next morning when they arrived at the hotel and Fargo, and in fact, still had and they had to go on state that night. They were not that the show is not cancelled. And there are some moments in this section where they're talking about their reactions to hearing about the crash the aftermath of the crash cetera. Were it's clear that the people who are being interviewed who are close to the musicians or the events themselves. Still have a hard time talking about it. Because even after what was then forty years ago at the time this tragedy still carried some pain. The behind the music episode, then goes into the cultural ac- of the event, including this feature films, the buddy Holly story and Laba. It also talks about two songs that directly addressed the tragedy. The first is three stars by Tommy Di which was also. Formed by Eddie Cochran. Up in the sky. Oh, tools. There are three new star. Lee full. Also bribed from heaven. Going to miss. The sins of. Richie. You were just starting. To realize your dreams. Everyone calls me kid. You only seventeen. The other. Of course is Don mclean's American pie, which I'll talk about more detail than next segment of this episode. But they did interview McLean for the episode. He does say that the opening of the song was inspired. I how he found out about the plane crash and the single had originally been dedicated to buddy, Holly. In fact, the song is the major reason the name the day the music died has been given to this event. And while it doesn't nece didn't necessarily save it from the scaredy. It definitely helped remind people of its importance as well as helped contribute to what was a revival in interest in the nineteen fifties and early nineteen sixties during much of the seventies and eighties, especially if the music in the legacy of these three artists. I found the episode in six parts on YouTube, and I will link to the playlist I made of them. So you can watch it in its entirety because it's a very good show and looked up some of the people interviewed to see what has happened to them since they were interviewed in nineteen ninety nine. Sadly, many of them are no longer alive. Couldn't find anything about DJ. Bob HALE past twenty eleven when he was involved with some weird argument and the media at the end, the Belmont because Deanna that's one of the other acts of the winter dance party tour, and there there was an argument over whether or not Dion was actually present between at the famous coin toss between Richie, Allen's and Tommy also. Donna is still alive and Lhasa Kasese living, Sarah Sacramento, and at one point was a mortgage broker, former crickets guitarist, Nick Sullivan died in two thousand four Tommy also died in two thousand seventeen Waylon Jennings passed away in two thousand to Peggy sue Garin passed away just a few months ago as of my recording this at the age of seventy eight Carol Anderson who is the manager of the surf ballroom died in two thousand six the surf ballroom, by the way, still stands at. It is now on the national register of historic places it is still peration as a concert hall in every year in the last few weeks of January and early into the first couple of weeks in early February. They host what they call the winner dance party. It's a several nightstand of various artists coming in this kind of a concert block. You have shows by accident. Classic rock and rollers. I noticed that chubby checker was playing this year but cover acts and even worse, the moderate artist, Wendy, and Carney. Wilson are among them and looks like they still do a pretty good business. And I believe they also have some small museums devoted to the big Bopper and Ritchie Valens and buddy. Holly. So that is the gist of what happened what happens on the day that music died, and what I'm gonna do is take a break. And when I get back. I'm going to talk about that song that gave it its name. I'm going to do a segment on American pie by Don McLean. Sticker out Sunday. Yeah. Hello do enjoy movie scores. Do you like science fiction? Do you like fantasy? And do like movies.

Miss American pie. Drove mush Evie to the livid that the Levy was dry and then. Gudo would drink whiskey and sing in this. So the the day that I. Be the day that. To right. Have been. So. Then rock roll and use it Savio models. So can you teach me? Slow. Samaya original idea for this episode was really just talk about American pie. It's some that. I've loved for going on oh thirty years. But knowing that this aniversary was coming up I decided to cover both the event and the song. Like, I said, I I heard the song probably about thirty years ago because I remember hearing on the radio one of our long vacation car rides. And I think it was probably when we were headed up to that lake New Hampshire in July eighty nine. In fact, I knows at least eight or eighty nine because of the following nights. Home AC in the seventh grade, and I remember my teacher, Mrs Kla Paki had a stack of forty fives. We were using it for some project. I don't remember what it was. But among them was American pie, and we didn't play it. But I do remember the song. And I saw the titles. Oh, that's song by by miss American pie. Because by the time, you got to the end of it, you can sing along to it. Because they say the phrase so many times this is a long song. Anyway, by the time, I was a nicer tenth grade. And I was regularly taping songs off the radio. I heard American pie of UB and managed to catch it in the middle of the first couple of notes there couple of moments of static in there. I remember once the song. Young ended. Another song began teaches us to do that all the time. Of course. But I didn't care. I used to rewind that tape and lifting the hell out of it my room when I was younger. The song itself had its Genesis in the late nineteen sixties was eventually recorded and released in nineteen seventy one even hitting number one on the billboard hot one hundred for four weeks in nineteen seventy two at a full running time of eight minutes and thirty seven seconds. It is the longest song to ever hit number one on the billboard hot one hundred charts. There have been a few arguments over the song's origins since nineteen seventy-one with different bars and music venues claiming to be the place where MacLean wrote the song or I performed it. There's also a running list of various interpretations of the lyrics, including an entire website. That went verse by verse through what the writer said McLean meant this was one of the number of interpretations takes Saugus. Very literal walk through the nineteen sixties. Although there are quite a number of that take the entire song to be about. The death of buddy. Holly MacLean has been purposely vague about the song's meaning and his explained bits and pieces about. It over the years. Best summing it up by saying that presents an abstract story of his life from the late nineteen fifties to the nineteen sixties that echoes how America was changing during this era when he auctioned off a copy of the working draft of the lyrics couple years ago for one point two million dollars. He was quoted as saying basically at American pie things are headed in the wrong direction. It meaning life is becoming less idyllic. I don't know whether you consider that wrong or right? But it is morality song in a sense. I'm gonna go with that. Because it's hard for me to concretely say anything about American pie or well, the nineteen sixties because obviously I wasn't there. But listening to the song and reading about it. I understand mcclain's point about this being a song that is about America in a way, it is sort of a try at writing the great American novel or the great American story. It takes the experiences of generation and encapsulates them into that work. Consider for instance, the great Gatsby by Scott fixture. This is a novel the focus on a specific era of the nineteen twenties. But it ends up transcending its setting to tell us the failure of what we often refer to as the American dream, and the hollowness of worshiping unbridled, wealth and materialism McLean. If we're taking him literally is looking at the nineteen sixties starting with Holly's death and ending with the tragic concert at Altima nineteen sixty nine that resulted in the death of young woman named Meredith hunter and McLean said that that verse that final verse as I watched him on the stage. My hands were drenched. Fist of Rick clenched. Fist rage. No angel born in hell could break that Satan spell. He says that is referencing Almonte. So it's not too far fetched to say that there is a literal walk through the sixties here in once sense or another. But even he says, it's more than that. And if I can take a more English teacher view of it 'cause busting out Gatsby wasn't enough. What mclean's done here's written eligible. The textbook. Definition of LG is a lament or sadly, meditative poem often written on the occasion of death or another solemn theme, some of the more famous are Alfred Lord Tennyson 's in memoriam A H, which is also known as just in memoriam. It includes the lines. I hold it. True. What air befall, I feel it? What I saw most is better to have loved and lost than never to have loved it. All. Thomas Gray's elegy written in a country churchyard in a housemate's to an athlete dying. Young are other very famous elegy poems. And I'm gonna spend a little time with to an athlete dying young because I was rea-. I thought of it when I saw that interesting L gino's looking at it. And and I read it, and I was like, oh this there's something in common here with American pie. So go ahead and read it to you the time you won your town the race week cheered you through the marketplace men and boys stood cheering by and home. Brought you shoulder high today the road all runners come shoulder high. We bring you home and set you at your threshold, downtown's men of Stiller town, smart lad, slip bed times away from fields glory. Does not stay and early though, the laurel grows it withers quicker than the rose. Is the shady night has shut can not see the record cut, and silent sounds no worse than cheers. After earth has stopped the ears. Now, you will not smell the route of lads that wore their honors out runners whom renown out and the name died before the man. So set before it's echoes fade, the fleet foot of Silla shade and hold to the low lintel up. The still defended Challenge Cup and round that early laurel head will flock to gaze the strength A-List dead and find on withered on its curls, the garland briefer than girls. As much as the seems to be just about an athlete and as much as McLean song seems to be just about rock and roll or buddy Holly or the nineteen sixties. They're both elegies for youth and their el-jisr for innocence houseman is saying in some way that the death of an athlete at such a young age preserves all he is in that moment. It is an odd thing to be celebrate ori- about maybe it's peace being ironic shit. I'm probably misinterpreting everything can force a point here. But even though there are plenty of aging Rockstars out there rock and roll is still so much about capturing the essence of youth that I can't help consider that housemaids poem directly. Applies to buddy. Holly, the big Bopper and Ritchie Valance, and that McLean takes that idea and writes LG for the innocence of his generation complete with a tone that well, not completely sad echoes the style of the youth is morning, and there is morning in the tone of mourning as you heard in the. Opening of the song which started the segment, and I've always looked how American pie both begins and ends because it is so much more intimate than its middle, which is rockets at times tumbles through the entire period of a decade where clean himself went from his early teens to twenties. Fat out a Rolling Stone. But that's not. So it is a big sense his own waking up to the world just as that world seems to be completely turning itself inside out and upside down, but then you get to this ending. I met a girl. Sing the blues. Inda foes, happy news. She just smiled and turned. I went down to the sacred store where I'd heard the music before. But the men said the muse wouldn't play. In the streets. The children screen. The levers, cried and the poets dream. Not a word was spoken. The church bells over broken. And the three men. The father son in the hole. They caught the last train the coast the day then. Musicians. This has the same Eljay tone. Reverend get sad is the opening, and if this is a reference to Janice Joplin the girl who sang the blues, and she had died in nineteen seventy it's appropriate considering that the nineteen sixties were book ended by the deaths of very popular Rockstars while. I'm looking on McLeans lyrics with a sense of what the last nearly fifty years have brought I can see how this represents a cycle that is bound to continue rock and roll has had its share of tragedy. Amidst all of its triumphs. Just eight years after American pie chart the nineteen seventies. And with the tragic deaths of John Bonham, Keith moon, and John Lennon all within a few months of each other in nineteen eighty then in nineteen Eighty-four. You have the suicide of Kurt Cobain, which is one of the defining moments of my generation when it comes to rock and roll in between, and since there are many other people have passed away, tragically young, and I realized that simplifying here for brevity sake that I probably shouldn't. Too much stock in the work of lives of our lives of musicians or any other celebrity for that matter when you're a fan of music, and you wind up getting really into a particular band or artist. Those people do become part of you in someway, it sounds silly. But so many of us as teenagers are searching for some sort of identity. So we turn to them lyric speak to us their music fills with Phil's emotional whole, we have and sometimes we even emulate them through dressing like them or adopting their attitude or their look, but there comes a day when that ends, and if that ends comes tragically it can be jarring for most of the time. I was prepping this episode I kept coming back to a scene from American graffiti, it's an exchange between John Milner played by Paul Matt and Carol who's played by MacKenzie. Phillips. He's been driving her around for a while at one point of some by the beach, boys, playing and Milner shuts it off and Carroll says what did you do that Miller says I don't like that surface shit rock enrolls been going downhill ever since buddy Holly died. Carol don't you think the beach boys our boss, John Milner? You would you grungy little tour p-, Carol, grungy, you big weenie if I had a boyfriend he'd pound you. Miller. Yes. Sure. I wish I had that clip or have time to to rip that or something and not just by really bad imitation MacKenzie Phillips, and Paula, Matt. But I think it all really fits this episode. Not just because of the reference the buddy Holly. But knowing that that movie takes place in nineteen sixty to the very very end of the summer of nineteen sixty two in fact, and it's about a generation of teenagers who are just in the verge of tumbled of the rest of the decade makes really appropriate. Sixty two is a year before the Kennedy assassination. We even find out that at the end of the film, at least one of the characters winds up going M. I a in Vietnam this encapsulates in a sense the first uptempo verse of American pie. And while I think that Carol's hanging out with Milner is partially to show. How ridiculous he is it away. After a he's he's the Woodson of the crew. He's way too old to be cruising around the high school kids, and she's in junior high. It also shows how they stand on either side of generational divide. When that perhaps as delineated by the death of? Buddy. Holly granted that's conjecture on my part. I'm kind of projecting. My own joke about a generational divide where the death of Kirk Cobain is that dividing line between the very tail end of generation X. And I think the early early millennials because I used to jokingly refer to it as the nirvana Britney Spears generational divide. But anyway, I for all I know that's not what yours was going for when he wrote this movie. Anyway, why do I have this attraction to the event why am I focusing on February third nineteen fifty nine? Well, it's because of the way that this was the music of another generation at tragic event that having seen similar things happen to stars of mine. I could relate to I could see how our experiences as teenagers can be universal despite the passage of half a century or so when I hear Don mclean's eligible for innocent youth, and I can see even my generation looking back at what we've been through while it not be as to may not be as tumultuous. We definitely have been affected. Thankfully, tried as this will sound I think that American pie and on a hopeful note the last part of the song the chorus sung twice first by McLean. Only with Qatar them by the entire band. Yes. It ends with a sing along, and it has the feel of guy and his friends drunk at the end of the night. Not lamenting their loss youth, but almost celebrating it sending it off to the grip on with. Thanks because after all. We'll be all right. And I'll be back in a moment with listener feedback. And they were seeing in. Miss American pie. Drove my Chevy to the live. But the was dry then good. Oh, boys with drinking whisky. Sing in this. So be the day that. This will be the day that I. They was saying. Missile in. Chevy. By then. Whiskey and sing this today. Mine was Grundy four on Monday following courting what they can from an NSA wiretap of a packet of statement. No names have been changed. Everyone is guilty though. I need mine or am I good where do? Mine. You might want only if you do have it set to autumn attic does you don't want it to automats. Thing never works. Right. Because what'll happen is it'll be used to you at a particular. And then if you go out of that scrambles to doesn't it? So it's better to just sound. Okay. It it really doesn't work. Well, so I chat I checked. My my. It definitely built built me for the hotel for all three of us joined back to the bins every week for goodness. Solomon, Grundy hate voice overs. How it's gonna be. Going to give you the two. So I have some feedback start the what Email I have. It's from Dion ballast Sekine bell. Sation apologize for. Completely mispronouncing your last name from Honolulu. Hawaii. He is emailing in about episode ninety one which was titans together. He says, hi, Tom great show. You put together, and it covered content when I was heavily into my comics reading the new teen titans was titled bought off the rack from issue. Twenty three to fifty those were some of the best comics DC published during that time period. I no longer collector, read comics as personal activity, although as a library, and I buy trades for my libraries young adult collection. But I enjoy listening to podcast covering my sweet spot of comics reading which last from eighty one to eighty four keep up the good work until next time. Regards dion. Thank you, John. And hey, I love the fact that libraries carry a graphic novels both adult and young adult. I check them out all the time. I love seeing my school library where I work with a huge graphic novel section. I love going into my library and seeing it and keep up the good work. You're doing. It's just it's it's such a great thing to see that that live. The library. My my libel. Also. And I'm just so happy to be there every time there, and I'm so happy to see like, you know, you guys really are is really do curate in a way that is really helpful to young people. All right. So he doesn't Facebook comments as well on episode ninety one JD of Wieder he of various podcasts, which I sorry, Dave. I don't know which one you've got going under. There's the the daredevils podcast for while. You have the Dave I don't know which one is active in which one isn't I'm behind on these things probably because I should stop listen to political conspiracy podcasts and true crime podcast in me. Listen to the ones that my friends produce. Anyway, he says I consistently Ajoy the Showtime, but this would be the absolute best year ever vade. Tidies titans. Eighties. Pop will next level. Awesomeness bryant. He said agree with him. I I really had fun. Putting that together. I long. Ago had decided that if I were ever to do titans index show. That's basically what I would have been doing. And that's really the reason. I don't do a titans index show aside from the fact that I think there's at least one out there. But that as much as I loved that episode. I shall listen to that episode like two or three times at least twice I never listened to my more than once after they drop because I always give one more. Listen to see if there's anything that got really screwed up to be completely honest with you. I listened to it twice because I enjoyed it that much I had such fun putting it together. But I will tell you it took a very long time to pick the music clips to just it was just it was a labor, and that's why I was like, you know, what this is why I don't do it. I mean, maybe I'll do another segment of of comics down the line, very similar to that. Or something with the titans with the eighties or something. But but thank you. I'm really glad that I got some positive feedback. Michael Bailey message. Me a couple of times and city really really enjoyed it. And I really appreciate that. Because that was really fun to do. I got a couple of Facebook comments, or at least his comment on my episode ninety two which is V H history. And the first one is from Luke check Nettie, he said, he really enjoyed this episode, Tom we were early VHS adopters, plenty of blank, VHS tapes that I recorded stuff on that plenty of Batman the animated series x men powering and other kids stuff, but also plenty of movies off HBO. And of course, lots and lots of wrestling still have some of them kicking around in my bonus room. But my love VHS is well established on a side note, my kids love the Garfield hovel holiday specials. We'd watch Halloween pretty much every year after trick or treating then thanksgiving in the evening after Turkey Christmas mixed in with the dozen or so other Christmas specials. Yeah. I love the Garfield Christmas. It's so good. Luke. Luke does number really good shows the. Earth destruction directive podcast. He and his brother Jason are huge wrestling fans. And it's always great to talk to see what he's got going. So check him out of run teacher freaks speaking to true freak. She got gene Hendricks. He says it doesn't matter when I watch an old Christmas special. But I always expect to see this commercial during it probably because it was shown just about every special that we take for later. Ewing. Now, dan. They will be reading checkers three you can never. Cute. Address window. I didn't do it. There will be. I hope I'm not hardness Mr. Panaria's Eddie to it. If everything goes according to plan. My next episode don't know when they'll be hopefully in March is gonna guess are Amanda, we're gonna be talking about stuff from nineteen ninety-five, especially one of our mutually favorite movies clueless. Until then check out the blog for some essays. And check out my brand new blog, the uncollected, which is where I'm writing about my efforts to consume all of the media that I've owned inlet pile up and the decide if I want to keep it if it's worth it cetera et cetera.

So where so your first big trip that you went on. What was the first country you went to outside of australia. Rica costa rica couldn't have told you where it wasn't a map. I was just one day. I was sitting at the office and i was like there's no way that at age twenty fulltime job nine to five feeling a little monotonous not unless you know and i'm like i'm gonna just google you know volunteering and i found this website and i signed up two months later i was i said i want to get the west sunny any woman. I want to be on the beach and i can't wait you. Send me as long as it meets these criteria all volunteering whenever i'm required to volunteer. What did you 'cause i that would volunteer in the morning was meant to be three months and then i'm thinking that i asked lived in costa rica at twelve years ago now komo where what other countries have you been to that to highlight for you that you'd like turkey really. I'll make the beaches the food food so he has something everyone so. I'll give you a history buff. You're gonna love it. If you have food. You're gonna love it nightlife shopping.

It was either a disappointment when you were there. You were not by comparison so i i my friend and i did egypt and jordan really julia egypt egypt i had super high hopes for and it was great like seeing the pyramids and in luxor was awesome but jordan just kicked it out of the jordan was fantastic heads egypt. Okay okay after leaving egypt mongolia jordan. I was like wow this place is just amazing. What was the big difference between the two i think and culturally it was a bit difficult for female chips in one and i've been trying to quite a bit. I think a little bit arrogant to the fact that i was was warned and i was expecting it but not to the extent that it was just really hard like of the female look. How is it hard restrictions and things but you couldn't unknown there was no boundaries and rules conquer down the street y. Like and then it's like it's not state for females and we've heard stories about you know multiple wives and had i explained that correctly like they were taking advantage of tourists in egypt. It is not on your bucket list to go back to. I wouldn't go back to egypt but you have to go at once incredible. I mean the mummies was just brendan. Brendan fraser's magazine wasn't there and i looked very high. Hello brendan how jordan different than egypt 'cause it's right around the same right or maybe just experiences that i had enjoyed and we did three nine super-quick who did news even like a bedouin camp. I arises like in the middle of nowhere in the like tents and it was the wind was totally dry area and it was just experience. I'm just culturally. I think it was my grind so and then we from the dead sea on news day and it was pouring rain and we still dislike have added eh so through your travel worst travel story worst travel story story.

She's like let me get you a glass of wine and like take it with me and i don't remember much of the flights yeah i did and it was so stupid. I like texas a bunch of friends. I love them. Before we took off cause. I was literally having like anxiety about all. This is terrifying so that would be the worst charleston would be the where have you been that just breathtaking to you when you first saw out of all the countries you've been to whether there it's just a monument there or just the country itself that was breathtaking for you. I think tanzania really yeah so you know the lion. King king just recently released. I was crying like a baby from the opening credits all the way through to the end because it reminded me of my there on your tastic on your instagram pictures from ten yeah and it's just beautiful like they just really captured it perfectly how it looks and help feels and it was breathtaking aching like literally gonna tanzania's living at lion king means lion and ricky means what doc lion king so. Let's get into your your next trip. The next track are going to be leaving very soon yeah levy in a couple of days right thursday night in about a week. I be going down to costa rica oscar. I am going to yeah so. Why did you decide. What's why has <hes> start. There could deep okay so about three years ago. My mother passed away and i think like i thought i dealt with it. I thought i was good but i realized recently maybe that's kind of leading to just feeling of monotony and boredom and whenever you know heightened senses of emotions but not in a positive way i tried therapy every time i left there because i was like crap complained for an hour just right in there and bitch about something like okay. I'm i'm good leaving now and i was looking up again the same as when i left to go to costa rica the first time something about costa rica can sit back there. I was just looking at alternatives things differently seeing try yeah and i was watching that chelsea. Does she had an episode ed. I lost her and she'll all like the professionals. Come in and watch your take like sleep medication and drink on it to see what the mix were like. You know what i'm gonna do this. I'm gonna he didn't die and i'll try anything once. You know i'll i'll try anything once. I liked it. I didn't like it. It worked. It didn't work but all the reviews will like people came out colleges. This heightened sense of south of south and i'm like i need. I think in a little reset button yeah. Let's push the reset button. So most people go. Oh do iowa peru amazon. Yes sure and it's a the iowa the what i read was. It's it's from a plant and and a lot but it's become popular within the last ten years they said so. There's a lot of places in peru especially eh that are like touristy iowa and they cut the iowa with another drug called toy which isn't good if you take too much. It's like very toxic. It gives you that high feeling but the purpose of iowa's is to you need to be in the right mind frame before you take it. Yes so that it helps you you. It helps you subconscious. Come through the front and you handle all of your your email demands eight and i'm so excited to see like what in there and they say everybody everybody doesn't everybody has a different react. Nobody has the same reaction in some people go and do it and nothing happens. So these ones the ones. I was reading about in peru. They are often like even just single expect for one nine five days of fool. Ooh and that's the one yeah combo was well exactly like the stuff they put on your skin because typically. They said that the the if you're going to do iowa the trips that you want to do is the ones that are not gonna just be like a three day thing. There's is like there's one especially the really popular when i forget who the guy that does it but it's like a two week and some people don't even do the iowa because they feel. They're not ready because they have you. Purge everything from your body. You're on a strict vegan diet as well so everything's out of your body. Your talks and they get you in a mental state ready for iowa. Oscar has like ten days for ten days leading up to god's favorite stories. You have to detox talks a special diet that you want you to keep vegan. Okay as little caffeine or no caffeine. Spicy foods really just a bland land. Let us die. I'm here rabbit for. She's gonna come back there vomiting diarrhea nia yes oh yeah diary. I find it interesting because the iowa a lot of people think oh woman go down like bros. Ios and bernie man came back. Sombrely wagga had a great after every celebrity ask and now they're like yeah. We're gonna go to peru. Do i get but how it originated was a medicine. They don't consider it a drug down peru at the medicine medicine and it happened to help you had a great results and russian and anxiety. I'm like and addiction. Why did you choose me by flooding zaid alright. What did i get on the plane that taking xanax on the way home what if you want to be a pilot afterwards i i've changed so this so you're going down to costa rica. It's for five days before you even take the iowa. You're going through a bunch of getting mentally prepared. They're mentally preparing physically preparing you for have interactions so you're not even allowed to take any medication advil or anything like that because it could actually have an adverse reaction with the iowa asca. Wow yeah so you have to be totally or is there a part of you. That's kind of scared because you don't really know what's going to happen. I'm having the same sense of like naievty that i did when i went costa rica the first time and like i said i told you it wasn't a map of a great idea. I'll go there funny woman volunteering cool. I like people wouldn't be doing this if it wasn't wasn't working yeah so the main reason why you're going is because you have stuff. You need work. I feel i feel like there's some demons in there. That needs like the exercise they will end up in my body. Go away but i think as well like i'm thirty thirty three now and i've kind of just decided you know if they're the change that needs to be made your do it now before i get to the mid forties and i should have made those changes ilia yeah whether that is a career change or moving again or you know. I don't know anything who knows so. We'll see what happens. Are you going down by yourself and yes do you. Do you think there's a bit of comfort going to costa rica. Since that was the first place you went and you spent a year. They're volunteering. Does that make it any different instead of pointed no because actually i was just there. They've been having a bunch of <hes> quakes and i'm also terrifying. I freak out and i'm like percents to them as well. I'll wake up in the middle of the night from like a three point something and call my friend roz. No they're not that wasn't an google it happened. It was there in the middle of the night and terrifying so no no comfort just backdrop. It's this very incas reading a bunch more more about. I totally signed up without doing my research. She's like i'll look it up later research after the fact chelsea. Did it totally totally okay. So what made you decide to go with it a certain company you're going through or how did you pick the people that you're doing it with. In my googling <hes> mm-hmm i was reading a blog and it sounded sign a cool something i'd wanna try out once and then i went to that website of that company and it was way too big. It was just too much like if i'm going to have this experience. I want little people around as possible own room. I wanna like it needs to be very smari. Intestinal intimate experience disgusting experience well right crying laughing you vomiting all all the things happening yeah. Maybe maybe that burrito ah inappropriate so i found like through that website i then looked up other opportunities in costa rica and found this one the a new life i waspa- eight people it's eight only down for that all the reviews with gray and it just was perfect fit closer to the cities. There's more convenient as well jessica in and out and i'm like i'd rather do this just people's perfect. You think the main reason you're gonna do it is to handle stuff in your pass. I wanted to see was in there inside yeah yeah. I think i've i've done a lot in the last twelve years. The guys who might traveling and just live experiences and i feel like it's been awesome and i'm ready for more. I need like a reset that needs to be like a reset. Button button hit just monotonous again now. Mike is going to be worried and nothing happens. We try something else. Black hair whatever they've gone. I'll try one. Have you had a strong drug. Pat pass like dabbling yeah. I mean look at this as the same or do you look at this more of a medical or spiritual spiritual. I'm not a very spiritual person like there was another company bat. Pardon the expression too much tree hugging cont like kartika ticket seriously like it's not gonna work so i think flatly spiritual definitely dabbling just to test the waters. Let's see what it's like but also for business perspective you know people were very interested in this experienced wanting to try. This is tau in show rijn. How we first met roz was that pride in year with stacy's mom we were like we love then we started talking about your travels and you're like yes. I'm going to costa rica doing iowa. I've always fascinated by yeah and a little too scared to to do it but i i know i'm way to sky. They'll do it though great material for the show but then i was like you gotta commodity because i want to talk to you about your feelings like we've been doing before you take this journey and then when you get back rossouw be back on this show so we will go into what really happened and you weigh yourself before. I really need to know like it could be the new like better diet found that might change it for me right so what you're doing the iowa and you come back from costa rica. Where is the next places. You're going to be traveling going to europe in october. Okay and we're doing again october. Fest so thorough time and i love it. It's like disneyland for adults if you want to rob rob lived in germany for a while what city in munich okay so yeah. I usually know happiness. I mean there's definitely a lot of people around that. Wait drunken sleeping on the ground with the grassy knoll grassy hill area where they drag you out to if you're drunk and you sleep it off until raced raced as i've been two years annaborough consistent land a few years earlier as well but it's so much fun what if you come back from doing wasco and you're like no i thought about that. Actually i became an american citizen lost almost almost turning earning one look great for one topic. Maybe a little too dark for the show but with everything that's going on right now as resin emigrant who just got your citizenship. How do you feel about all that like how what is your viewpoint on everything that's happening with the <hes> of hispanic latino culture and the border like even today mississippi this week would happen with them during the raid those kids away like when you see it and being an immigrant and just going through the process of getting your citizenship like how does how do you view it through your eyes because i feel actually not guilty on the right word. I was really fortunate. I want my green card in the lottery this versity visa lottery and literally when you get your green card as as d._v._d. One which is division one lottery winner right green codes at every time i would come into america congratulations miss. I'm like thank you already. Missile already miss being congratulated every time it came to a very different experience out but so it's hard because i see these things happening. I know how easy the process what's to me. You know the hottest thing was making friends and finding my grew a little bit of guilt in that when you see everything going how easy it was bad out about it. I'm like no. I didn't struggle so i wonder how would be now if you were going through the process in this in the way everything's happening now like how would be affecting you. I personally now think we got like receiver. No he's very passionate about good. I'm really passionate about them. I want gone volunteer withdrew i._r._c. which is national rescue committee but just with work per work life balance and i didn't have time. They knew several hours from you a week. It's not not just a small commitment as a part time job almost so i wanted to help with these things and it's hard to watching we were just talking about oranges and you black. Is all about you know i i see deporting people. I mean this is horrible. Lives people have children and they belong here for opportunity and if they're going to work with them work yeah and even especially what happened within al paso which i boggles my my mind that that particular walmart <hes> all of the clientele there was very hispanic and they were coming over the bridge all of that they were actually how they've been in helping the com- the economic boom for al al paso and all of that and then this happens. It's like they're contributing so much to the country they our country. Don't realize you know what i mean and i don't know what needs to happen. In order to get would have realized like who needs to get shot for. It's <music> change yeah. Do you want to wait. That long. Book needs to happen. Everybody needs to get out and vote and just just keep voting mandatory. You get fine. They median time. We'll get all the idiots vote donkey voting in australia faces in the boxes and doesn't so you're forced to go in there but if you don't like any of the parties you just like whatever you know what the fuck off uh-huh voting on donkey voting because we get fined. I've been fined several times because i haven't been there. I told them and there's bookings you keeping skill table okay here you get people to come out want vote yeah yeah. Do you now that you're a non voted. The out in the local elections just became incensed. When we come on that's fine yes how do do they all really good big difference than being a permanent resident and citizen is your right to vote because now you have a say in what's going to happen with country. I and i want to have a say because now this is where i did how many years in the u._s. it'll be eleven years. In september. Eleven years of your life has been spent here. It learns to be an adult island in america like everything from washing urine. Close taking yourself to the doctor when you're sick. You know all that just by yourself. You know it's so i wanna i wanna participate but yeah this week with the past stuff. I was just like it just keeps bringing. You know it's hot though traveling as an american and then people get really deep conversations about it and it's like look i know how it looks. I agree and you're asking the wrong person. The argument outta me. It was so easy when obama was enough time to travel and now fact now other countries like giving warnings out to their people come to the west. It's safe which when people people like asking me about the safety of going to countries really have you walk down the street recently laid down this avenue in the gas lamp at this time and i know and now i'm curious your take on all of this. You've been sitting there quietly listening like i usually do no. I just think uh-huh some people forget that don't live by the border like we do. We we are very close to the border. It's it's not much different than it is. 'cause i also lived by the canadian media border because i grew i grew up in michigan before i moved here and so people crossed the border to back and forth from canada to the u._s. All the time to shop or whatever or work work and then go back well. The same thing happens down here. It's just but people treat it so differently and <hes> and i don't know why it's because it's the canadian border in versus the mexican border i think because there are so many people that come up from the south to seek refuge because they're coming from horrible lucchese horrible location some of the worst places in the world down in central america. I mean maybe not where you're going. I did take buses losses all the way from costa rica all the way to tijuana. That was one of my journey. All the chicken buses all the way up because i was really when i left costa rica the first time i had no money and days that take two weeks announcing the stone where she has to ride the chicken to get up from the amazon. Go through mexico. Go and come back like i haven't seen that film but i know the place de fell. There was some areas where you get off the bus. All my thank goodness. Where am i really had no idea. I had no idea of safety. What's the worst that could happen at a great childhood childhood of my idea idea of like safety with didn't even occur to me it could be dangerous but now on the climate even here you go to walmart and he is going to be scared is more concerned in america than i do when i'm traveling traveling when i'm traveling. I'm just like yeah yeah. You know you just go and guts sick. Yeah rob any final dots. I'm eric cut you off okay. That's that's all i was. The only trying to make is that you know the people that unfortunately they may have been shopping at the walmart that day. They were just doing shopping. It's not like they were illegal immigrants and even if they're even if if they were it's not like it's i dunno. I look it like how many of us here in the u._s. Go down to especially being here in san diego. I'm going down to t._j. For the day for day to go shop to go eat to eight hundred dollars yeah so it's like what's the difference we do. In especially in san diego we do the same all the time now to take advantage of completely and then all of a sudden you flip it and everyone has a <unk> horrible opinion i know and the last point that i was just trying to make was it's not illegal to seek refuge at the southern order so it's all crazy and the whole the whole wall thing drives me crazy because can you imagine if anywhere in the anywhere else in the world was building a wall around their borders what we would say about it. Didn't that happen <hes> germany. Hello pat down come on. We've evolved human being they follow europe was building walls around other little at the border so i think the answer is we need david hasselhoff off building a wall. How how's maggie explain yourself your pie chart when the berlin wall to take out so he's actually the answer and we went all over the place the macarena west trip what happens if you take a really bad trip on iowa's i fly. That's part of the process right like if it's a bad experience maybe this i was being mean to you though like what scares what what what makes you done something the first time you drank alcohol the first time you like like took years old but i think there's an element of what you know what could happen what could happen and for me. It's the fear that it's gonna last a really long time and it's gonna like really fuck yet. Fucked me up like the whole triple negative. What if i'm just cycling. I mean i've read the blogs people have vision than is is there. This may be too personal. Gosh not for air is there a part of you is hoping to go down there ska and maybe even see your mom know ironically. I'm no i'm. I'm at peace with that. That happens people lose parents. I mean you have to expect to lose your parent. One day right. It's gonna happen that was unexpected and so i've come to peace with that but the bitterness or like doc whole that makes inside of you. That's what i'm really like. What's in there what if house what if it is your mom. I hope she's got some nice things that i'm she's a very religious so she was very religious catholic time roman catholics and so i've got pretty strict family. Did you ever strict childhood yeah. I i yeah i was raised catholic parma high school. How do they feel about this. Oh yeah well so when she passed away. Hey i'm sitting there going. What is she up there watching me before i had the pacific ocean between us. You know there was like a separation. That's was safe now. What if all that stuff that. She believes he's in israel and she's up there just like man. I don't you dare cross. What are you doing. What is your dad still with us. Yes he and how does he feel about. Do you have a good relationship with them. Yeah my dad and i have a good relationship. I think it's been a little bit different now. He just recently started dating dating again. Gotta be interesting. How are they married for. Ooh excellent question a long time long time. They have a good man. Yes we're at twenty five years by china yeah. That's going to be rough your data greek back out there yeah honestly. I didn't think my brother and i thought it would actually happen. He's he's supportive caused abbott jeremy. I like no one wants to wash your sixty something. You're all underwear. No he wanted a young woman woman. He wanted to be dated. I might know that that's absolutely absolutely not so but he's on someone's i like. Actually that might be more demon that come out of yeah yeah. I really like feel about that. I was on board with it but but maybe you're not found out i was not action. I had a reaction was not a happier. It's just the replacement. It was honestly feel like my dad. Whenever i call him he would come back. Straightaway rapid fire and three weeks have gone by. He had no call me back and i quote him every week. Normal time hit not called me and we did what he been doing. I've been busy doing what not one i've gotta go like. You're trying to tell me that you didn't call your doctor because you i expect that from my male friends not from my father his reaction to it feels like apple users. It was okay. It is okay but you always gotta be weeks three weeks. That's what you did. I asked my brother like i just think wrong mine trouble. Ah yeah i wanna get back to eric's question really quick. What's the one thing that you're hoping doesn't yes come. Come out of this like when when you go into that abyss that iowa's known to take you in especially dealing with ego and you're making your conscious your subconscious satellite yes so in deep deep deep deep down in you. What are you like. Oh i'm not enough. I'm ready to deal with this. I'm i'm concerned that i'm pretty content with how i am with live. I got a good one thirty three in good times and contended attended. I'm worried that maybe it's going to be like yeah. You've you've done. You've come you came. You saw you conquered. You're good. You're good and there's so much more to do. Which is what i'm hoping it it comes out of it is like a refresh or this is what asked you can try now not a thirty three and you're like the better to come out like the fear. Is that like it's done now. Yes you came you. This is the rest of your life. I don't want that feeling. I don't want to come out of it and be like you've done. Your best. Living now is a mexican eric. Go down into iowa. Whoa what would that before you so that one thing you don't first of all i mean so my my ex husband actually did a sweat lodge and i was talked about this. I i was terrified. I actually booked a massage instead. Let me know how it goes. I'll talk to you in two hours or we're however it took so. I don't even know where it would do it but i mean i have. I have lots of demons now. But which is the one that you don't you. You don't think he'd be able to handle facing. I mean i i have issues with my father. I haven't spoken within twenty years so i the dark stuff i mean i i it gets to rob. What about you. I am okay. I have no demons what about rob. This is the only point only ah right here next to me. What about you tony. What what is i is it. Yeah i would want to deal with that really yeah because is with the cancer being put it all into perspective about how you don't know how you're going to be here. One day. Everything can change literally overnight at had a cancer scare this year. Oh so you talked about that and i was not the whole story i know but you're like ain't got feeling of your life thinking. You're invincible yes. Are you saying till you start hitting your forties in this. When the kansas stuff happened for me was in my thirties it really put your immortality or your mortality in back because you know anything could happen in could happen and i notice actually so when that happened this i._b._m. Like just going through day to day life last threes my mom passed away and then when that started gotta coming into effect i was like pushing the boundary like this was the boundary and i was just like nudging nudging nudging and i'm like what is wrong with they quit nudging the edge was the kansas care for you kinda like how did that really easily and so they're goto reaction i do blood tests came back and they were like you have to come in for your results copy could so i went in and they're like we're going to send you to a hematologist who specializes in oncology. I'm like that's that's not a word. I wanna hear either so i go into there and they're like no. We're going to test leukemia really quickly because that's the most obvious reason for this. Happening is a leukemia and i'm like hey ladies. Sorry no right so we've found out it was your liver. The end of the day like do the testing and it came back and they made me do few rounds of chemo in not because it had it because insurance wanted wanted to do preemptive care what i never heard that either asphalt right so wait. Did they anything that would just like you have the the symptoms of what could become who this so that maybe do preemptive care totally payment or okay ask. So how long did you have to do that. I wouldn't go back for more so than i paid out of pocket for a second opinion so you had to put poison in. You being wanted to do preemptive. How do you feel about that. My mother passed away from cancer so i've felt very strongly about chemo. They told her i'm like. Why are you bothering your cancer terminal. Are you bothered with chemo so i felt very strongly about the whole process and kind of <hes> pancreatic and lavar. Oh that was firm from diagnosis. Depositing was six months very now yeah. That's scary it was it was very like nobody nobody expects bad so true true yeah so it's not like pushing the boundaries with it and what we were talking about. He does inches. I ask i'm kinda like i need to refresh because like that was horrible. That was an experience. Never wanna go through again and i want to be sure about my choices voices yeah. I've i've thought that if ever i get diagnosed with something i would never do chemo and i obviously was not right about that. I did it anyway. You know something like that. Atn needs to be something. You're sure about like what you buy your credos into be really solid. I think as you start to go answer is no joke now but yeah like even there's just so many people let's still go through it in for and there's people we know personally struggled with cancer and my best friend actually australia has stateful lung cancer. She's vietnam. She's like she's not in remission yet but she is back to working full-time living earn again like life back. You know it's interesting every different kind different results or reaction yeah. No it's true. It's got really daughter lighter note food. I know this for really quick.

Los Lobos Welcome The Holiday Season With New Album 'Lleg Navidad'

"The WB you are Boston. Meghna talk with Artie and this is on one point for nearly fifty years. Los Lobos has been mixing and matching genres rock or in being Mexican folk and now Christmas songs in their latest Album may scoured the Latin American Christmas Carol Catalog Songs from Columbia Texas to their hometown is called you giggle. NAVIDAD or Christmas is here. Ah Stop Doc that he two four becomes uh this hour point celebrating Christmas with Los Lobos. And you can join US letting American listeners. How are the holidays and Christmas in particular? If you celebrate it how do you mark them in your home. And do you have a favorite Latin American Christmas. Carol what's your question. Four Los Lobos call us at one. Eight hundred four two three eight two five five. That's eight hundred four to three talk. Also anytime online at on point radio DOT ORG or twitter and facebook at on point radio now. Los Lobos has been performing for almost fifty years. They're a multi Grammy Award winning group and their latest album. I'm is called Yego Navidad where privileged to have two members of Los Lobos with us today in the studio. David Hidalgo a founding member of the band. He's a songwriter. Long writer and multi talented musician. He sings and plays a myriad of instruments including guitar Banjo Cello and the accordion. David Algo welcome back to on point or your uh-huh it's great to have you and Steve Berlin. While not founding member he joined Los Lobos in one thousand nine hundred eighty four and is many instruments include saxophone flute and keyboard keyboard. He's also a terrific producer. Steve Berlin welcome to you much okay. So first of all tell US Christmas songs. Why why was this sort of the genre of music that you thought? Los Lobos has yet to do that. Let's take our Christmas well. It's it's been it's been and every every year it comes up you know. Should we should one of one of these days. What are these years? We should do it. Chris and The time around the concept of doing Latin American Chris- Christmas seemed to be good. It made sense so lead. We tried it out. I'll I'll be honest. I love Christmas music. And many of America's most people don't think that's partially because it comes earlier and earlier earlier every year get bombarded with. Yeah but on the other hand. Many of America's greatest musicians have done fantastic Christmas album so it makes perfect perfect sense to me. But how did you go about picking and choosing from the Latin American catalog of of Christmas songs. We we reached out to some friends. Who are collectors? Not Necessarily Christmas music. But guys who we thought we'd have a repository of ideas and We we managed to acquire about a hundred and forty some songs just to just like not no sorting whatsoever just like pile of songs to start the process. I think we just need to start someplace. You know. It's not like we had stockpile ourselves and basically that just kind of opened the door you know we sorta through some of that stuff was there's no way in the world we could do it but sort sort of informed the process and once we got rolling it was kind of like any other less lobos record were the two or three songs in brings in an idea and we we chased that around that that brings up another idea so it it was It was fun. It was a different in many respects but in many respects the same as any other record that we do track that we just third at the top of the show. DONDE ESTA Santa Claus. Tell us about that one. It's his name is augie real. I'll give you yeah he. I was a child actor back in the late fifties and he had his one off hit and But that's that's the only familiar one that I remember you know of all these songs we've W did That one little shanty songs. I heard that one before too but but most of them you know we just sir we just looking to. We found stuff that we thought we could do. Yeah so nine hundred fifty eight. I think. That's where notes here argue Rio. Es performed The Santa Claus. He was twelve. So you say you you remember that from when you'd be into like when it come Christmas season you'd be we driving around shopping. She has a station that plays a Christmas music. That would that would come up. That was part of the rotation. Yeah well let's hear another track from Yugoslavia Dodd. This is Laura gazillion Kazimi last. Name your got busy guessing was aww. That's Rama from Yugoslavia dot the latest album from Los Lobos. Now this is a larum comes from the Mexican tradition. Yeah it tells about it. It's Well how Mu- music because it was the guy how is the from recluse area and this is that's part of that tradition and it's just to most of the like the Mexican Christmas songs with religious At this is speaking about the loop so there wasn't a whole lot of wasn't a lot of really fun on songs from Mexico that's pretty serious and for For a church like I mean the river search Ellsberg. That's that's one of them that had some fun to If I if I have this right. So it's custom where people decorate occur eight branches with the Law Shamas and they carry them in procession through through their neighborhoods. You said that you Is a song originally from the very crews region or did you decide to perform in the style of music. That's the style that we've that's the one. We founded founded version. Okay so tell us more about this. This this This this book style of music. Is it fun to play. Yeah it's hard to what makes it hard. It's Well it's like I guess you'd compare it to anything it'd be like the Bluegrass of Mexico. It's a harp be small vetoes a little four string guitar sort of an instrument and and is a rhythm is typically cut on as those are the basic against her but it's It's usually pretty fascinating. And it's an improvised and provides versus and stuff. It's a off. It's a challenge. It's beautiful I WANNA be attrition. David I mean I think you guys are terrific musicians. It's hard to. I believe that anything would actually be in town and it is. It's it's no joke. Go ahead I mean you know that style. It's the the instrument the Dave places to Hereto. Replace it with like a duck telco turned on the pointy said. It's just a a workout. So would you describe it. It's well these a sliver of cow horn beginning with that was the pick but over the years but I still use them to but but You get a Nylon Barbara Comb shave it down and to the shape and you play with that. So that's it has because of thing to do you have to apply yourself to play. You can't take it easy and now that can succeed biggest. Challenge too because you your. It's it's your improvising. So you're playing against harp player or you know. So you're when you're on your toes you know. Well we are talking this hour with Los Lobos and their latest album which is gay. Go Navy Dodd. Their first first Christmas album. Where at eight hundred forty three eight two five five? Let's just quickly go to Alaska. WHO's calling from Detroit Michigan? At least so you're on the air.

When the La Bamba found chat came out and for those of us who were like not in Texas not in California not even in Chicago to hear the La Bamba Sonatrach and to see like our parents parents and grandparents be so proud was really really formation? Oil and I'm sorry we really emotional about this So to have this album arrive after all this time and to be Re engaging with these traditions that were stripped us through assimilation or in some cases repatriation and So those of us who are really far from the bathroom is just phenomenal. Canonical it's phenomenal. It's it's more than I can even explain. And it's way more than like Santa Claus at least at least that we hang. Hang on for a second. So you said you're hosting your first. Tommy Lada did I hear that right. Yeah Yeah what is that.

Yego Nabi Dodd. It's their first Christmas album. David Hidalgo joins us. And so it is Steve Berlin as well. And if you've got a question for the Los Lobos call us at one. Eight hundred four two three eight two five five and St. Let me just ask you we. We had the snake this one in here. Even though we're GONNA we're talking about Yugoslavia died. Would you think it is about how those lobos did La Bomba that gives this song on such staying power. Remember looking across the last of the control of people still rocking out decades. After the song first came out you know I would contributed mostly to the magic computer. Sometimes just a thing just captures people some education in a way that can only be described as magical it It's why we do it. I think you know every once in a while you sort of achieve this moment of like it's indefinable but I had. I had a friend back then. Who was really legendary producer getting Paul Rothschild? Who did the the doors records among many other records and he afterwards ahead he? He had this thing like he was a very analytical guy like he kinda like analyzed wasn't just like you know magic to him him and he he had this theory which you proved that those court changes were a top ten if not number one hit every eighteen months so every eighteen eighteen months that he went back in time and sure enough. It was like you know almost clockwork that that that you know it's very. It's very simple coaching. But every eighteen months sure enough there was a hit. So we've we. We caught that wave right on time. I if we're still on that cycle maybe we're getting close to another other could be another eighteen month moment of Hank Williams also said he brought a song that simple for anybody to play. You'll be hit. You know what he's talking about. Well let's go to Karl Who's calling from Tampa Florida. Carl you're on the air. Thank you you. How are you good how you doing? I'm doing great. Listen I just wanted to let you know I love your music. I've listened to you for many years. Here's my ex wife and you probably know her. Because she's a grouping of yours she she followed you guys around San Antonio Repeatedly Hedley to every venue you went to and she loved music so much she turned me onto it. And I've been listening and I wish I'd heard more of your your earlier days but I love that you coming out with new music. I'm I'm planning on getting it and I just wanted to say. Thank you very much for the entertainment containment and if you see my ex wife and her husband you will know them by and Richard Okay. uh-huh thank you so much for your call. I'm David in St Louis. Just turn back to the the sort of founding founding songs that that that catalog of one hundred and forty latin-american Christmas songs that you had to choose from. Can you tell us a little bit more. Yeah I mean obviously Latin. America's a huge. It's a huge grouping. Here we're talking about Mexican central South American songs awesome from all over the hemisphere. Yeah yeah everywhere it. What one thing that we learned? Is that the Puerto Ricans love Christmas. This others on balance it was a sixty percent maybe more puerto rican sauce which fantastic. WHO's a Lotta amazing like? A lot of salsa stars had not one not two but sometimes three Christmas records over the course of their careers. I know it's insane so once we sort of had this this group large group of songs we we you know. It wasn't one thing obviously. We're not the salsa band so we had to kind of pick the the ones that made the most sense the ones that we could actually address in our own style so that Kinda removed Many many many songs from the rest of the list once we picked And then I think it was really just a matter are mostly just balancing the vibe like trying to get things out you know. There's a lot of there. Were a Lotta Minor. Keep stuff that we really liked. But we couldn't make the record on monarchy so and then balancing singers in sort of the instrumentation so it wasn't We kind of wanted to be a broad spectrum of sonic sounds Colors David you wanna add to that Well like you said about the Puerto Rican. That's I I've been I'd love. stringers is the Qatar instrument that that it's called the Guada- throw from Puerto Rico and I tried to play it in it and a big. That is a big part of the of the lobby or the Christmas tradition Asian. So I was kind of familiar with the style but we could There was it over the years like he said. Salsa artists have done records extra level Combo. Willie call along among people like that. You know so we listen to those records and it was a good way in just one well so there. There is one track on the album that was actually composed by you for specifically for the album. Ram Thinking about Christmas and you. So let's listen to a little bit of that not think This Christmas that's Christmas and you from Los Lobos. Oh bonuses new album Yego NAVIDAD now. David van made Louis Perez wrote the song specifically for the album. Tell us about it. Well We're talking about it. You know years ago. I want to see Chris Isaac do a Christmas show and Talk to Mafrij the the asks. Have you written A. Have you written a Christmas song. All you need is one.

What is it It's a song from and it was on a There was an extra level almo total and Daniel Santos and really Cologne and it. I'm not sure it's Christmas Song Christmas album so we figured close snuff. I think It might be like a carnival song. Yeah Okay let's seasonal winters celebrate. Yes you want to tell us more about the Dick Dick covered. We're concerned for a moment that it might not be Germane but kind of worked it out the. Let's go to Let's go to a nerve or genetic from Portland Maine You're on the air. And how do you say your name. Okay Geneve I'm so sorry about that. Today's not my day with pronunciations. Give me go ahead. You're thank you well. Look my name's Meghna Chakrabarti. You think I should get the name with low slow most of Alo- Hello. This is such a tremendous honour. Let me tell you. My parents are from Mexico and Cuba. my mother was actually born in El Paso. And I lived in Austin for twenty years and I just I cannot give you enough Gratitude for who you are and who you've been for all of us and I love that. You chose to do this because bringing this particular kind of joy and and the desire could dance into to a a family holiday. I think is an extraordinarily beautiful thing to contribute my favorite Christmas song. Though is actually from Brazil. It's a traditional northeastern song called POLITICA. I think Brazilian music for about fifteen years. It was popularized by mighty someone she it's about a butterfly and I and it's for children and I love that that that you're singing to a butterfly in Christmas Eve And that it's a traditional songs around around we. We've missed a lovely song and I just wondered if you had given any consideration to any Brazilian traditional the music. I mean we would have. We didn't we didn't didn't find next album. Cool back up. They should have before you go so the in board bullet a you're the you're singing to the butterfly on Christmas Eve. What what is the song? What's in the Song Little Butterfly comes out of the Rose Garden a little little butterflies so blue so beautiful. Today is Christmas Eve and and then it starts singing as the butterfly. I'm just a little butterfly flying around you can someone who would love me lovely. Isn't that thank you so much for your call that tap that are sort of that. The hat tip to Brazilian Christmas music as well. Let's go to betsy. WHO's calling from Saint Thomas in the US? Virgin Highlands Betsy. You're on the air. Hello Mary Christmas one of my favorites one It's we don't have snow. Oh here. Of course Ho Ho Ho. How will Santa get here? There are no reindeer in my country. You'll have to borrow my neighbors donkey so so we have so many traditions And we have a lot of Latin music here too so in the Caribbean will will thank you so much. Thank you so much for that call. I mean this is going to come over and over again. David and Steve. Because I mean we're talking about an entire hemisphere. Uh of music here was were there. Any songs Caribbean inflected songs in that. One hundred and forty-six well stuff from From Columbia Yeah on the back there Puerto Rico Panama I think there was what glimpse about. I don't think we could pull that off. Why not? Let's outside of her purview. Afraid you know that's a world unto itself you know what we know we can and we can't do. I think that would have been a step over the line. Perhaps interesting because I was thinking of Los Lobos as Aban that like if you If you want to you could it would take some doing. I mean that was one of the other things. Making this record was We had a very like the. The timeframe was very compressed. Like we we started. I think we started in May and we had six weeks to complete it. While we were touring entire time as well so some of the songs on that big list were awesome awesome but They would have taken a lot of time so we sort of. I wouldn't say we dumped it down but we you know there's things that we could accomplish in a relatively short period of time and certainly offer authentic calypso might have been a spent a week on that fall short so well we are talking this hour with Los Lobos about the their Christmas album. Yego NAVIDAD. Let's just take a moment to step back in time a little bit because I want to hear from the one thousand nine hundred four album album. How will the wolf survive and here is will the wolf survive? Running they were the that's will the wolf survive from from Nineteen eighty-four. You guys are smiling and kind of shaking your heads here. Not what why a different time. Who I just some of the choices that we make just waiting to hear it again like Tom Late said picture yourself. Here's look too to big real funny haircut. Something like that for the okay so tell me tell me about what you think about the choices is that that you made for this track But it's a drum machine for one thing is kind of nutty. That's the biggest thing because it was. That's when that technology made its way into to pop music so obviously Germany. It's the symbol. Sounds just like the most inauthentic damage which they've never gotten symbol. Sounds right ever. There's never been a good stood extent that now like people are becoming love with the Senate machine symbols solid hip hop music basic for instance. But it to me. I just remembered that was that was German. You know it was all about like trying to get like new. Sounds sounds I remember going to burbank and different kick drum sound. You're Burnin e Prom back in the early days of Digital Technology Eric. It's just funny to hear that we made the choice to use a German. She instead of young as one of the best drummers under a panoply of germs to pick from but we chose stupid machine. Yeah that's a good point given the talent that you have right. Did she used to be in sync with that. That it was like it was a new technology. Those taking over you when you played with the shiny new toy your vanity. I think it was one. That was the only song. Don't record or anything like that. We're not GONNA do we pick the one. We're still proud of. Its a good sign choices. Well let's go back to the phones. Let's go to Roy who's calling from Fort Lauderdale Florida Roy. You're on the air. Hi and as each of your listener talkers. I had said I am truly honored. I was at a small club called Musicians Exchange thirty years ago listening junior wells and buddy guy and all of a sudden Los Lobos comes up and does an impromptu from the Dade County Youth Fair you you all were playing at the Youth Fair in Miami and late at night you show up on stage at this mall musicians exchange and I've been a fan and ever since living in Fort Lauderdale the Latin flavor. You all flow my question is how did you find each other. You seem to work so well together you I find it hard hard to listen to your music and not be able to move my feet tap my fingers or an. I'm just always curious. How did you collectively come together and say this is it? It was well we all went to high school together. We all met at high school. Oh so that was And back then on east side of Los Angeles it was the well all over. La There was a lot of young people playing in music and a lot of bands. You know everywhere and so we. We had a new well season. I went to school together and junior high school tonight night at Louis from art class and then the Conrado little older than the rest of us and but he's already an established musician in the area area. Everybody knew who he was so it was. It just took a little time. That's all I got. I don't know and you'd it's the same school you know. See everybody every day. Become friends and then you talk about music and that leads to one thing leads to another and you know we're still here and Steve Steve. When you go pulled in the I showed up later? I didn't go to school him now but when you showed up I mean to Roy same question like like how. How did you know this was it? Well you know the the the funny thing about Well my entrance Mike. The way I sort of showed up I mean they had I was playing with a group because the blasters and slow up for number for the blasters and nineteen eighty seventy nine and was You know at that point in the La Music scene. The old the band had been together the longest I might you know might have been three years among the Weirdos on. Ah but you don't like a lot of the bands. Even the blasters hadn't been together that long and sluggish is after they've been together playing together for the better part of seven years and it was there was a palpable difference in the the strength of the music strengthened their commitment to each other that no other band in the scene had which I was surprised. I know surprising to me and then as I get to know them I sorta understood that you know. They had sort of formed this bond in this culture while all of you know everybody else that I knew was just sort of still journey figurative. They were these guys had already started. Families there in in many respects like further certainly more grown up than anybody else I was hanging out with at the time that made a big difference too. Well Roy thank you so much for your call. Let's Jeff Who's calling from watertown Massachusetts Jeff. You're on the air. Hello Gentlemen I saw you last night and you could an honor to speak with you. Thank you thanks giving column I wanted to ask you very quickly can you tell when you're cooking onstage age. Does the audience always give it back to you. Because last night Louis seemed to be asking us. Where are you and the answer was we were blown away? So can you feel that you know when you're on. Oh I think so you go for it. Sometimes we try to we try to go for it every night we try. Oh you know do the best Greek or go somewhere. Different at least We we never do the same set. I tonight So yeah we can tell when you guys are with us. You allow us to goof around and the and and he go we take us there with it. We take each other to wherever we ended up. And it's it's a good thing we appreciate it. Well let's logos has been together together now for what verging on fifty years six forty six. What's been the secret to staying together for that long We don't know. Actually you know just not asking that question. We give each other a lot of space. You know we don't like you know we. We understand who we are disappoint so everybody gets to be who they are you know. No one's forced forced to conform. You know we we dress code clearly or anything else so I think part of it is just Understanding each other. And then you know like nights like last night where you have a really good show and then whatever you know if there's any like interpersonal oddness it just kind of gets washed away by the the next night show so it's it it's It's hard to answer but in some respects. You know this is what we do this our job. Well we're going to wrap up Today's our with a one more song from Yego Navidad and we're going to go out with Phillies Navidad. You kind of had to put it on album right last the song that's been done so many times and so iconic was it Was it fun or kind of a challenge to to make it into a Los Lobos Song. No we made made it fun. We we we tried a few approaches and then it just turned out a gang vocal was the way to go. We had like thirty people in the stadium singing the course and then we were using on the video. There's a we're actually walking around in a circle Mike in the middle so we're walking around the circle so you're GONNA try to make it sound like good bigger or bigger than it is well jubilation with low slow bus and felice NAVIDAD. David Hidalgo and Steve Berlin. Thank you so much for being with us and and again the new Christmas album is called Yego Navidad. We're going to go out with Phillies NAVIDAD. Happy Holidays everyone. I'm making Chalker Buddy. This is on point. MM-HMM MM-HMM Yeah.

The Mount Rushmore. Eddie Murphy Movies. Last week just watch. Magnolia for the first time it was different. Well put together movie. I know you really like this film. I just WANNA know why enjoyed so much. Yeah it's one of my favorite movies. Black five nine thousand nine. I could talk about going for a long time. But I'll do it as simply as possible. I think what I love about it is it has such audacity and it really takes so many and I think by and large it sticks the landing more than any film has the right to the first ten minutes particular so audacious the Paul Thomas is literally framing this movie about chance and luck in an opportunity how it all converges together. I think an SAMBA SAMBA apiece. And we're GONNA talk about Ozark today. Which is the main thing. I'm reviewing it's hard to have all the characters be compelling but in Magnolia they all the characters are interesting and engaging and I'm curious about them I think a lot of them have a lot of depth of their character which is hard. Because you're not the lead character urine ensemble piece. I think frogs falling from the sky took a lot of guts agape theaters and pulled it off and it makes sense memorable having the whole soundtrack from Aimee Mann. And there's one sequence for each. The characters sings a line from the song that could go drastically wrong. Look at Stephen. Box Goes Cop rock and yet Magnolia takes all those chances ended up being a very moving story about loss and about aging into real meditation on that. And it's also really funny. Look at macy's character. Neil this board loser and I've mentioned before I think it's Tom Cruise's best film and I have a lot of time for for Magnolia. Just think the filmmaking level of it it's a real bravura show from PT Anderson in other of you here's while from Brett s Baker. My man always tweets us.

We've just pissed off today. We're GONNA talk total recall two thousand five thousand four really strong year million dollar baby. The aviator among the movies that came out that year. Plus Mel Rushmore a Mount Rushmore. Jack Nicholson that's right. Whatever happened Jack? Nicholson as it made a major film since the bucket list which is over a decade ago. I believe two thousand eight. The reason I thought about him was I watched iron. We which I'd never seen before I panned on Golden Pond because I'd rather drown than to watch on golden pond again but there's a film called. Iron we'd the Jack Nicholson and Meryl Streep. Both of those actors were nominated for Academy Awards. It never seen it before I watched it. I enjoyed it. So that's GonNa be on Mount Rushmore. The Best of Jack Nicholson. We've also got some entertainment news as well particularly. Ostriches could get push back. Oh No don't say that but I'm GonNa dive into Ozark here. I'm not going to be kind K thirty hours. I spent watching Ozark and I've heard the reviews my cousins. My brother Steve Levy Mike Golic. I mean everybody in the world's is you got to watch. Those are great. My wife and I watched the first episode a year ago and I said all right it just seems like a derivative breaking bad. It just seems like a Pale imitation of that. I have no reason to continue. But of course our and a pandemic there's no new movies coming out very few. Of course I mean I guess I could watch Giannis Array movie at some point lovebirds on Netflix but Ozark. We'll make an expedition here by better half an eye. Let's dive into thirty hours. Three seasons of Ozark and it did not take me thirty hours three seasons to tell you I stand by my original belief which is as a poor man's breaking bad. I think the show never fails to get fully revs and first and foremost. What's it about money laundering? I can't think of a story idea that is less emotionally visually stimulating than money laundering. I mean breaking bad. You're making drugs all right so you can literally see cope being made or you could see. Peta means wherever drugs are making and you have guy says offense for his business L. Local you've got Bryan Cranston killing people and there's no place and those are like money laundering interesting at one point early on. You Send Morales by the way. Why love from La Bamba Plays Bob? I wish they had a lot more him in the show he's telling Marty Bateman character that he's got to launder eight million dollars and I'm thinking how the hell even do that especially in this place over and I thought visually they should have actually shown on the screen. Okay here's where the money went to this business. Here's where the money went to the gentleman's club. Here's this many went here just to show it because I'm still in disbelief. That this could actually launder eight million dollars in two months which is a summer. Which has I'm getting ahead of myself though. So let me give you. The actual plot synopsis created by Build Dubuque The drama series stars. Jason Bateman is Mardi bird a financial planner who relocates his family from Chicago. To a summer resort community in the OZARKS WITH WIFE. Wendy and their two kids Intel Mardi is on the move after a money laundering scheme wrong forcing him to pay off a substantial debt to Mexican drug lord in order to keep his family safe while the birds. Fate hangs in the balance. The dire circumstances forced the fractured family to reconnect. So you do have elements of drama here has been doing a bunch of malfeasance partner gets killed in the first episode. He's going to go ozark. Make good on the debt and unlike show like breaking bad in which Walter White was essentially going it alone there with Jesse in his wife. Skyler was in the dark. Eventually she comes around. She's an accomplice in this show. Wendy bird played by the magnificent. Laura Linney knows exactly what's happening and so that adds a different layer to the show having said that I'd still didn't find engaging and Jason Bateman is one of the issues with it. He always plays the same guy. My Man Ben Lines Point this out to me and I was resistant to the thought. I think he said to me a year ago because I love arrested. Development arrested development is one of the funniest shows in the history of mankind and dish. Abatement is outstanding on arrest helmet and Benson. But he's always the same guy. Because I'm telling you guys get zero range. He's as much rain as Derek. Jeter going to his left in this final season like you watch Bateman. And I'm watching the show. I'm like what a surprise. Drescher rolled up sleeves same haircut. Same voice just kind of ineffectual character. He keeps talking about saving the family. Which kept making me. Think about arrested development. He's always having the same in the family there but rather than George Michael he's GonNa worry about Charlotte. It wasn't nearly as interesting as my man Michael Cera so I don't think Bateman stretches I think directing is much better than his acting and my brother tells me he won an Emmy for season two for directing an episode of in the first season. I think he directed at least four episodes season two and season three. Maybe one or two a piece. One thing I'll tell you about his directing that guy loves focus pulse. That guy will just lay down an oncoming traffic for a focus. Bill to explain what that is when you're looking at a shot of two characters or even could just be a character with a picnic table in the background. Foreground and background the focus bowl. You literally rack focus if you had the camera and so if the character in the foreground is in focus and the character in the background is not when you rack. Focus or do a focus bowl. All of a sudden. The character in the foreground is blurred and the character in the background is there. I'm telling you I'm watching the show like dude. Hey listen a focus bowl. It has real power when it happens once in a while. This guy must be doing every episode every every minute of every episode so clue the academy. If you want win an Emmy Award just have a lot of focus bullets in your show. I mean he is focused. Polls as Scorsese says detracting shots or hitchcock is to the overhead angle of impending doom. So the problem is I said is I just? Don't find there to be enough. Engaging characters or stimulating plots I think Bateman woefully miscast. Most of the supporting cast isn't particularly engaging they're either one note rednecks are just disturbed characters. Who Don't hold my attention. Petty for example as the FBI agent. And you could say listen in any show. You have a great nemesis right. If you don't find the characters the main characters that stimulating if I'm telling you I think Bateman is kind of an opaque guy. Well if there's a good villain chased him that makes it endearing right or at least well. No petty comes off this poor man's Hugh Jackman he's an FBI agent who's willing to bend the law who's also gay who who seduces the characters and later on it just takes some SORTA turns. He's telling Ruth Julia Garner's character about her dead uncle and he says yeah. We had our dixon each other's asses but I'm still going to get justice. I mean that is how it serve align later on. He's masturbating to the voice of the dead uncle disturbing and this also makes me think about these shows with these immoral characters. It's if they always have to one up how depraved the character could be like. At one point. Laura Linney is trying to seduce and course the politicians not sexual manner but she's trying to get some money and so she gets a stripper from Gentlemen's Club which they bought to go to the politician and later she walks in the strippers wearing a strap on the politicians sucking off a stripper. And he says to the Guy Okay. Maybe this isn't this embarrassing for both of us and the guy is. La's Harry stomach and he's wearing a bra and thinking about is anybody out. There has to be an actor like how does that guy feel like that guy. We need to get onto the file. That hey who are you on on the politician who was blowing a stripper wearing strap on that. I'm wearing a bra and you see close on my face just brutal having said that even though there's a lot of predictable plot twists. I mean my wife guest. I'm going to guess at least six major plot points that got that guy's going to die. She's about to die right here. This character is about to say this. He's GonNa turn on her right here. It was quite frankly annoying after awhile. I'm like listen. I know you're predicting entire show. I'm not smart enough to get this But there's a lot of telegraphic the bottom line is this. Here's the good news. Whenever Jason Bateman looks the ratings and apparently it is a wildly successful show. Emmy Awards Emmy wins ever loves. He should thank God. They got Laura Linney for this show. Laura Linney puts on a masterclass in the show and she is nothing short of masterful. There's a couple of moments they've got one pretty good fight In the first season episode seven the best episode of season one is episode eight. Which is a flashback. Which shows her character. Wendy is complicit in all of Marty's actions in season three the whole storyline which again is very predictable involving her brother. The episode eight nine. Let me tell you right now. She's definitely getting an emmy nomination. She might actually win an emmy because her performance is terrific. And it's a minor. What a good actor Laura lineas. I went back and listen to her. Mark Marins podcast. Wf check it out and didn't talk much Ozark but it's a reminder how good actress she is she was in the savages and she loves Philip Seymour Hoffman. She says to this day. Whenever I'm acting I tried to summon the spirit of she goes. We were great friends. I love working with a wonderful guy. She was in John Adams Paul Giamati. Hbo Mini Series Amazing. And she was in. You can count on me which I'm going to talk about next week. Is Mark Ruffalo is in the? Hbo Mini Series. I know this much is true. And that announced his arrival and in many ways her arrival as well. She's been an actress who was in. Kency as well terrific I believe. She was nominee for best supporting actress in that movie Mystic River. She's tremendous she's like lady. Macbeth. You know. Just basically goading. Sean Penn into getting revenge daughters so listen. Thank God liniers in it. Because she elevates the entire show. And thank goodness for Julia Gardner. Who WAS NOT NOMINATED FOR? The first season was of the second season and one and she plays the tough talk and no nonsense. Very Profane Ruth and she's the one that I think really holds people's attention and generates the empathy particularly what happens with the storyline involving her father but ultimately I'd rather be stranded anywhere than the ozarks. Here's my point always about shows when people say to me. You love watching movies. You're not as big into shows. And here's my reason. A bad movie is only two hours. A waste of my time. Right on. Golden Pond is an hour and fifty. And I say okay didn't work for me. And by the way that adds to my catalog of Henry Fonda and Katharine Hepburn Ozark. This is thirty hours of my life. Which never going get back and I feel particularly better off for it ultimately giving it to maple leafs and I totally understand John clearly in the minority here. I know it's a wildly popular show but it just didn't do it for me that that's fine. I appreciate you putting in the lake work so that I don't have to because I've never seen Ozark and my impression of it was exactly what you said. It seemed like a poor man's breaking bad But I don't know if he mentioned it the Laura Linney and Truman show. She's also great in that too and I guess I'll also say that there's no such thing as small parts only small actors so if you're cast as the politician needs to blow off a stripper strap on hope. He just went for that role. I hope he dived in. So maybe I'll watch it for that so I was GonNa say I should have written down time corner that exact same. You can listen back by the way a previous episode. I had matthew mcconaughey in a file. And there's Kimbrough the movie I was reviewing it came out last year. Something like that but but I joked to him I said. Hey you know for all the women listening and hey for the guys as well your bare but is shown like the twenty three minute mark a laughter because well thanks for time coney letting everybody know the exact part. I should have actually written down with us. Politician Sea Island. Maybe it was. I think it season to opt to go find it now. Just everyone can be reviled by the seat itself. Great Point about the Truman show. You're right. She's awesome at the scene where she freaked out by. Truman realizing that Jim Carey is you're right. She's fantastic of that movie. Oh yeah so great. I can't I mean now. I WanNa Watch rewatch Truman. Show she's also really good in the animated show Bodak horsemen where she plays herself in it. I would recommend that for people who like Laura Linney as far as shows that I don't watch that would like to watch Jack Horsemen is definitely something. I should give a chance. You're right I should. I mean listen between will net and Keith Olbermann plays a character on the Sean newscaster and Laura Linney. I didn't realize show. I should definitely watch at some point ultimately though Ozark did not work for me. Let's get to someone that really does work for me. One of my favorite comedies. All Time. I'm so glad it was on. Tv recorded watch it again. Nicholas CAGE IS CHARLIE. Kaufman it confused. La Screenwriter overwhelmed by feelings of inadequacy sexual frustration. Self loathing and by the screenwriting ambitions is freeloading twin brother. Donald Play Nicholas Cage while struggling to adapt the orchid thief by Susan. Orlean Meryl Streep Kaufman's life spins from pathetic. To bizarre the lives of Kaufman Orleans book becomes strangely. Intertwined as each one searcher passion collide with the others. Anybody who thinks this life of being a faux film critic in Reno reviewing shows must be a lot of fun getting paid to watch things I've ever years ago she's gone talked about it and said the number one thing. That is the worst part of the job. The absolute worst is when you watch three movies a week or whatever it is and you go God. It's the same old same old than it feels. So derivative and repetitive and seen it before as so. That's why when something is original with a capital capitalized italicized. You go crazy for it. And that's where the critics go nuts for it. That's why Fargo Gene. Siskel said was one of his top ten movies of all time because he said it would show originally. I'd never seen anything like Fargo ever before and it literally combined every single genre. It's a murder mystery. It's a comedy it's drama. It's romantic it's a film noir because it's all these things and that makes me realize why. I love adaptation so much because it is so original. Kapitolo capitalized italicized. I've never seen a movie like. It is so funny and take so many chances and it worked which just shouldn't and cages tremendous a previous episode. Acidify you can listen to it. I talked about bringing out the dead which was very happy. I mentioned underrated Scorsese Film and told him. Adaptation is one of the best movies ever seen and Nicholas Cage is tremendously. It's not just playing one character perfectly. It's both characters perfectly right. The the joke isn't that always so playing the self loathing guy. No he's still good playing the happy. Go lucky guys. Well as brother donal but nailing Charlie Kaufman. I mean. It's one of my top five comedies. Of all time that is disputable. You could argue. There are funnier movies. Five what you cannot dispute. I'm telling you right now. This is one of the top five most original movies. You'll ever see as far as being Meta Emmy Ta and turn things on its head and it shouldn't be surprising. It's coming from Charlie Kaufman. Because he did it with being John Malkovich he did it with a Turtle Sunshine of the spotless. Mind he did. I think with middling results inspected New York starring. Philip Seymour Hoffman. But he always is going to take chances and this story about the creative process about this guy who hates himself. I mean the time no time to call themselves fat. I'm laughing every single type and even the first scene is voiceover but him saying I'm so fat I got to start working out. I got two girls. They have switched pressure. But guys that pressure to I've gotTA GOTTA stop wearing my shirt tales. That's deceiving the fact. I'm so fat and I'm terrible horrible writer and I'm worthless the scene where he's literally single. All these things himself stop sweating. Oh my gosh. She's looking at your hairline. Thank you just a disgusting human being and until the smitten says we think you're great at that is this guy's life. He just thinks the worst of everything the trailer for loan of amputation. Go trailers two and a half minutes. They've got under pressure. David Bowie and its purpose. Charlie cop and lifts his life the way. He writes his life with great difficulty. And so he's trying to adapt this book from. Meryl Streep's Character Susan Orlean and yet he says it's that since it's so perfectly it's that Sprawling Yorker Shit he goes. There's NO RESOLUTION. There's no there's no character. Arcs I get one of my issues with ozark. Batman's character really changed. He's just the same guy. Well same thing. The way that caged writes this. You're listening to the care doesn't change if the orchid thief it's about this character played by Chris Cooper who has got no front teeth. Who's in Florida? Who's obsessed with flowers and rates about the crazy white man and it will put collected fish health. How am I going to adapt this? So rather than being a story about the orchid thief it ends up being a story about adapting the story about the orchid thief. And so you've got not only scenes of cage as cop writing the script but also Meryl Streep's character writing about this character John Laroche and she's visiting Laroche's speaking him so the movies working on so many levels one of which just a creative process but two of which what is it like to be an orchid thief and Chris Cooper won an academy award for his performance. Because at first you think all this is the kind of guy you make fun of no frontier trucker hat like I said Redneck in the south but then you see the tragedies overcome and this horrible car accident and how he lives his life and he gives it such pesos and he deserved that. Oscars tremendous and MERYL STREEP'S CHARACTER'S SUPER INTELLIGENT writers. But you see that. She wishes she could be like Laroche. She wishes she could care about something as passionately as he does. Because she's living this life this life van we so it's working on multiple levels and then I get to Donald Coffin which of course Charlie's twin brother Nikkei's playing both characters. This guy's going big smile on his face. Yeah he's got a receding hairline. Yeah he's a little his carries play. Police have a great time. He's sleeping with a person. He met him being John Malkovich and again speaking of Meta. They have one sequence on the set of being John. Malkovich that you see John Cusak in character going into that eight and a half foot wall and Catherine keener and it's just. It's working upon levels upon levels. Which gets me to the single best part of the movie Brian Cox. We've all established now. My love for Brian Cox washing succession. He's got a senior Robert. Mckee the legendary screenwriter. Which is one of the funniest things I've ever seen in my life. Nick Cage is using voiceover and he just berates the whole concept of voiceover and berates. The whole idea that you know. There's nothing out there in the world worth really writing about the real. Life doesn't have a lot of drama and Brian Cox inflamed overacting to the extreme and just boisterously yells and Castigates Charlie cop pointing out everyday. Something happens a rural people. Find the people lose. Love a guy cheats and his best friend. A guy makes a critical decision to change his life. I women finds her baby dead outside a fire house. This stuff happens all the time he just. How could you tell me? There's not anything happening in that. Real life is boring. It's hysterical scene and later on it's even made pure by the fact he takes out. Robert McKee our Mickey helps them with the script as he tells him. Hey you guys are twin brothers Jules Epstein Philip Epstein They Will Casa Blanca. Finest script ever made adaptation. The Third Act when I? I thought I didn't like it as much. Because Basically Charlie Kaufman becomes the third act. He takes McKee's advice and does the Selo model he puts in a car chase. He puts an early death. He has a big love. He has voiceover at the end. Has a music fate up at the time? I thought that wasn't as strong as the rest of the movie when I watched it again. I said. Of course it's strong. They're making fun of their parodying. There's satirizing what those are all about. I can't say enough good things but adaptation if I could give it ten maple leafs I would. I'm giving it four maple leafs. I hope I haven't given it away for those who haven't seen it. Please do watch Joe. It's brilliant. I loved it. I watched it last night. I'm really big. Spike Jones Fan Charlie Kaufman Fan Nicholas Cage Fan and I hadn't seen this movie and maybe twelve to fifteen years. Thought it held up. I thought it was equally as weird as being John Malkovich And I like the themes in you know he without giving too much away. He's trying to tap. Adapt this movie or this a book in at the end of the film and it's killing him to do it throughout the movie then it actually kind of literally tries to kill him at the end of the movie. I also like how he credited Donald Kaufman as a writer on the movie. So that's pretty cool and I liked how he's talking about split personality and how you know you shouldn't use it in movies. But then Donald is in effect his split personality throughout the entire movie. I really enjoyed it. I was talking to my roommate though about it and she absolutely hates the movie And I asked why she just feels that it's Kind of self indulgent she. She had read the original book. The orchid thief by Susan Orlean and she loved it and so her point is you have this white man and his inability to adapt a movie so instead of adapting this beautiful book. He just makes the movie about himself and so she didn't she didn't like that aspect of it too but I personally really enjoyed it. Yeah I guess I could see that. I mean if you've read the book adaptation of the Orchestra and go wait. This is not about the nation. I guess I could see your point but I think you still get enough elementary and I haven't read the book so maybe it's unfair media even try to but if there's enough scenes of the orchid thief and I think if you've found that interesting you'd feel compelled to end up reading the book. At least that's my feeling on it because I do think that section of the movie in which you know she's profiling Laroche and what he's all about is still interesting. Idea of Newsweek writes in the wrong hands. The lunacy could have gotten out of control but Jones has near perfect pitch. He never forces the farce rooting even Kaufman's wildest digressions. It real emotions. I mean how about the fact that we'll police have a Darwin. He's talking about the movie and he's like Charles Darwin writing the story. He's got the beginning of time. You're right about Spike Jones. I keep mentioning. Copy Spike Jones's equally brilliance and caroline. Westbrook rights. Like Malkovich. This is too surreal for all tastes but not day is original experience for those attuned to the Jones. Kaufman brand of filmmaking. A healthy lifestyle should be easy right.

They'll get some of your reviews dressed to kill which by the way at one point. I was dying because D- And Charlie reference dolls talking about a split murders personality murder and Charlie doesn't listen. There's nothing more hackneyed than that serial coz split personalities. But he tries to be nice to Aphrodisiac dressed to kill and Donald conferences. I love dress to kill which I just watch for the first time. When Liz Blake by Nancy Allen Prostitutes? He's a mysterious woman brutally slay Kate Miller Angie Dickinson. She finds herself trapped in a dangerous situation. While the police think Liz the murderer of the real killer wants to silence a crimes. Only witness only. Kate's inventor's son. Peter played by Keith. Gordon believes Liz Liz team up to find the real culprit. Who has an unexpected means hiding identity and even more surprising motivation to kill? I enjoyed it. It's a movie that I think has been awfully dated because the main characters transgender and they've got a sequence at the end I mean is I rolling and little nausea inducing at the way. They tried to explain that the character when his penis gets hard. The female side takes over and then fields murder the male side because he's transitioning from male to female you know females body and just hates himself so much that he feels like he has two murders somebody when he becomes sexually aroused clearly is not going to play well and twenty twenty. Lgbt community and this was made forty years ago so the fortieth anniversary of it. I don't think that transgender character kills an attractive woman because their penis gets aroused and they're mad at the male side of themselves having said that in terms of tension implied invention is certainly enjoyable. It's what I would call a genre movie and it continues Brian. Depalma's obsession love with Alfred. Hitchcock it's a fascinating. Debate is diploma a great director because he takes hitchcock movies and then forms Zoll with DNA of Hitchcock. Or is it outright thief and a guy that makes hitchcock? He's all over again and just remakes them and doesn't have the originality of the first movie and then just earns the spoils of them. I don't know what the answer is. It really is each person's view because clearly watching drastically. Go Yeah this is psycho. This is psycho in one thousand nine hundred. There's a brutal slash and seen rather than in a shower. He puts an elevator. But it doesn't have Bernard Hermann score but you know right away like yeah man wearing a wig psycho again okay so Michael Caines going to be the Anthony Perkins character interesting but still it works because it's got enough moments that are certainly juicy and say this for diploma. I'm telling you as far as any director when you throw dialogue out the window. He's having a blast when the cameras just takes over like he's got a twelve minute sequence here fabulous no dialogue just one character track and the other think of Carlito's way what's the best part of the last ten minutes not as war to dialogue. It's just Pacino get raced to grand central station. You got that incredible shot in the escalator. I mean that whole sequences amazing the subway cars chasing the cars amazing. Then just to kill as well think of untouchables. What's the best thing of untouchables when the baby carriages going down the steps to slow motion? Which of course nod to the Odessa steps sequence in Sergei Eisenstein battleship Potemkin loves taking famous sequences famous movies and putting his own spin on them. That's reviews Roy so kind to him. Generally speaking I think in his later years it became a little bit too predictable. Fem fatale. Rebecca Romaine snake eyes with Nick Cage. Those just didn't work although raising Cain to me still has some moments with John. Lithgow Michael Blow at a Boston Globe dressed to kill as a nail biting seat squirming stylish murder mystery with a brain. Dave Care Chicago reader. Originality has never been a high value in the genre bound aesthetic of filmmaking but diploma cheapens. What he steals. There's my point there but in being a thief Roger Ebert Depalma's an artist of hitchcock stature. But he does earned the right to a comparison other go dressed to kill. Don't have you ever seen it Joe. A forty year anniversary of that movie. You know this is the the Palme blind spot that I have. I've never seen dressed to kill The cast it's looks great on it and you know me. I'm a big fan so I definitely will have to watch this. But did you catch the dressed to kill reference in adaptation? What he's talking about the twin brothers and he goes. Oh it's cybil meets dressed to kill. Donald SAYS I love dress to kill. It was great. Yeah he he goes. I love to kill until the Third Act dement and then that's not how it's pronounced. That's right dated great great one more by the way. I'm going to give dressed to kill. I'll give it three maple leafs like I said I was a little squirming at the end there but I did think it was enjoyable in various suspenseful all right one week before iron. We'd in depression era Albany. New York Erstwhile Baseball Star Francis. Phelan play by. Jack Nicholson has become an alcoholic vagabond. After guilt over accidentally killing his infant son led him to desert his family over the course of several days. The animals ready job to dirty bar to makeshift sleeping quarters. By Fellow Itinerant Drinkers Sometime Lover. Helen Archer played by Meryl Streep Together. They waxed nostalgic about their haunted. Pasts the review here from Ed Pot and is notable the Times if you enjoy Richard E Grant Melissa McCarthy as on the skids New Yorkers in Kenya ever forgive me here's an star your example of Hollywood poverty porn. It's adapted from a play which means that it feels little stilted at times but but I enjoyed it. I thought it had excellent performances. Jack Nicholson Meryl Streep both nominated for Kademi awards. Best actor best actress respectively a good supporting cast as well including Diane Venire member. Her and hate playing Pacino's wife Fred. Gwynne played the judge in my cousin. Vinny Tom Waits as rudy the famous singer he's Nat Nicholson's main accomplice. There's not a lot of meat on the bone but I thought the performances were very much lived in and felt authentic. And it made you feel like you're in that era a great depression a terrible time of poverty. You look at what this country is going through right now. You know thirty. Five MILLION AMERICANS UNEMPLOYED that we're talking about levels you're not gonna hit since the Great Depression so I found the movie and looking back at it and honestly it's a movie to watch for the first performances like I said as far as the story but it's literally but a couple of drifters and homeless people looking for their next meal Nicholson's character reconnect with his family. Let's reminder of what a great actor is. It's what inspired this. Sweet Smell Rushmore. Streep's character I don't think fair's nearly as she just doesn't have as much to do. Meryl Streep obviously the greatest actors of all time. It just didn't pick her performances as memorable but I thought Nicholson was definitely worthy of watching slow paced to be sure of this and this is to fifteen to twenty car-chase in this thing but I would. I would like to read the book which was based on a Kennedy was wrote the book despite its nearly two and a half hour running time it's Super Star cast as twenty three million dollar budget. Janet Maslin York Times writes. Mr Bankers are we to skeletal. Sheila Benson unkind the film becomes becalmed and confusing. It lacks the knowledge. Great unwavering trajectory I two and a half maple leafs. Because I ca said I think performances are noteworthy analyze. The fact by the Nicholson's character is a former baseball player. 'cause he's like from the dead baller at one point. He's talking to his grandson of applying with ty COBB and why Cobb was better than Babe Ruth although he couldn't hit home runs like the big guy like of MBA. No that's Joe Racine it. I'll give it to an APP. Maple leafs hadn't seen it the Catholics Graham. A huge huge huge. Tom Waits Fan. So that's definitely a plus but I guess the thing that worries me about. It is the first review that you've read and I personally hated. Can you ever forgive me and so I have two questions for you one would you? Is that an accurate comparison. This movie to ever. Can you ever forgive me in two house? Jack Nicholson's act in it in it. It's the overacting. Or is he chewing? The scenery is more about Schmidt and underplayed in it. How is he yeah? I thought it was more like about Schmidt. More subdued ten minutes in. He's going to see him where he goes to the grave of his infant son. And he's talking to his base basically happen is that he's holding his kid and dropped accidentally and that's why died and his wife never revealed the truth for years to anybody that he was the reason that the kid died. So he's got a really good seeing that where he could kind of get the tear ducts cone instead it that he underplayed it and played it really well to see him balling. Tim. It's a movie. He just talking very flatly with some ocean to his son. And then Tom Waits shows up and away they go and later on tells you know his wife had went to his grave and that kind of stuff so I thought his acting was terrific and I don't think it was like Kay nearer. Forgive me I disagree with that review. Actually I mean yeah I mean this is like abject poverty okay like Meryl Streep and Jack Nichols Literally Wearing trenchcoats sleeping at side starting with a bunch of homeless people. Can You forgive me? Mccarthy's character I mean. She's more filthier than anything when she has. A job loses job because of her behavior. And then you know she's got cat crap. All over the place attrition regret cleaning up but I. I didn't think that it was as as bleak as that movie. All right cool then. I'll definitely check it out. Did you at least like Richard? E grant it. Can you ever forgive me? I thought he was hysterical. Yeah I did like him in it. I just didn't think I also went into the movie completely blind. I saw it at the Alamo Draft House in downtown Brooklyn I thought it was a thriller of some sort so maybe it was also just my expectations going into the movie. And so that could have e- you know if I had known that it was more of a bio pic picture about this this woman creating counterfeit letters. Maybe my opinion of it would be different. Totally Fair it was not thrilling. Story of thinking when she's replicating Hemingway's signature and putting it off all right coming up next. Entertainment news the Mount Rushmore Jackson Movies. And this week's total recall the two thousand five Oscar. Well News involving full House actress Lori. Let's agreeing to Sir two months behind bars and your fascist on her husband most shimoji newly agreed Sur. Five months part of a deal to plead guilty to cheating the college admissions process according to Co papers filed last week study reversal for the famous couple. Insisted for the last year they're innocent that investigators and fabricated evidence against the decision comes about two weeks after the judge rejected their bid to dismiss the case over allegations of misconduct. A wasn't us. It wasn't us. It's nonsense what we can't get out of it. Okay fine we'll do it under Lachlan's one hundred fifty thousand dollar fine one hundred hours of community service. June new league. It's a two hundred fifty thousand dollar fine to fifty hours of community service. I always laughed those signs. Because that's you know. Excuse me this is a chump change of these guys but prison. Time the thought here is can we from the movie right publicity hop but what she get a weekend in jail. Maybe a week tops. Laurie often gets two months. This has to be a made for TV. Movie like Amy Fisher. Joey BUTTAFUOCO couple years right. It has to be and I'll be there front row the day it comes out 'cause nothing going more than a fall from grace sell definitely be there. Yeah I think overall this is positive news. Do you think I know? There's been a debate on whether these celebrities should actually do jail time because it's a non violent crime Where do you fall on that? I don't think it's it's a long enough sense that I have an issue with it. I think you want to be able to tell some listen you bribed officials it was clearly reprehensible behavior thus you're getting prison time and like. I said I mean look it up. I think it was a weekend and week. Whatever it was two months and that's hold on horrible. I mean right now. You feel like we're in prison of self-isolation so I think I have an issue with it because of the timeline if it was six months a year hanging. A second victimless crime. You bribes some people. Yeah it's horrible. It happens all the time. I think. Two months to me sounds fair. I mean it got really lock. She'd be thrilled because my understanding was. They kept saying they're going to be innocent. She was facing years of jail time. Plural wow yeah. It sounds like they did the optimal move for their situation. So yeah we'll see how it plays out. Yeah I'll other news here. Nothing I love more than the Academy Awards. They are until February but the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences Considering Postponing the Big Knights supposed to be February twenty eighth mixture on. Abc One of the sources familiar told variety. It's likely they'll be postponed. That stinks not cancel. Bella postponed person cautions details disclosed in other sources date is currently unchanged at ABC. We'll find out. I mean that'd be upsetting. Certainly it's unclear postponed the ostrich by the would also mean that the academy will allow films released after the year end deadline to call the twenty twenty one officers. That's a good point. So the Twenty Twenty Oscars should be all these released this year at the Oscars are postponed from February until June. Well then it still should be talking to you and next year. It's still should be all the mood of this year. I I would hate to have it all and be all right. Here's the the last sixteen months something like that? That'd be very odd to me and one of their entertainment news here. Avatar to wait for this for years. God you're waiting to get out of pandemic. I'm wondering how we're GONNA get another Avatar. Well good news here Oscar. Winning titanic producer. Jon Landau off a fit on instagram. From the AVATAR SUE set. Special message are Avatar sets ready. We couldn't be more excited to be headed back to New Zealand next week. As a shot of a Matador Avatar the first major studio failed to return to production since all shoots closed mid-march because the coronavirus pandemic New Zealand's government endorsing the health and safety protocols. So this is big news. Avatar is going to be released by Disney. Next December December seventeenth twenty twenty one last summer. Adventures Endgame Beat. Avatar highest grossing movie of All time two point seven nine billion dollars. I saw Avatar once. I liked it different. I'm shocked at me that much money. I see this for James Cameron. Between Titanic and Avatar. He can go to bed on his pillow. Full of dollar bills feeling pretty good as life canny. He's mastered the blockbuster this point Hasni. I'm glad I'm glad that going back. I know New Zealand did an incredible job fighting the pandemic. I think they eliminated it. Covid nineteen on the island general too. So yeah I'm excited to see it. I'm excited to see Avatar to. Because he knows it's going to be a big cinematic three d experience. I've I I don't know about you. But I feel like he will use the medium in the technology like no one else before as say whatever something feels like it's dated Kamara's gonNA use cutting edge technology like nobody else but you blue people just like the smurfs all right. That's your entertainment news. Mount Rushmore next Mount Rushmore well as I reviewed iron wheat nine hundred eighty seven film but a couple of homeless drifters depression. Era Starring Jack. Nicholson Meryl Streep for this week's rushmore. I've Jack Nicholson movies. I'm not gonNA read the entire list because there's just too many to count but God. This guy is a legend for good reason. A Three Time Academy Award Winner. Which is where we begin. One floor the CUCKOO's nest indelible performance playing mcmurphy a guy who's GonNa fight against the regime in nurse Ratchet yes. He's an insane asylum. But he believes he has its merits until of course heartbreaking. What she's lobotomize amazing performance. A rabble rouser in many ways you think of. Jack Nicholson and this is the first performance you think. Oh because it tapped all of his wild and crazy energy another film from the seventy s one of the greats of all time Chinatown unforgettable at the time he did like the fact that Polanski cuts up his nose bandaged instead that image of him wearing a bandage. Fedora is about as memorable as any move to nine hundred seventy s or from. Jack Nicholson filmography. He plays a private detective so well especially the shocking news. What happens if Faye Dunaway said slapper? All over the place and he finds about her relationship with John Huston her father about Schmidt. I talked about before I love it. Because it's a rare example Jack being subdued. I wanted to get something from later in his career. The scene where he finds out that Indu wrote himself a letter. That's about as pure an emotional bit of acting as you've ever seen Jack. Nicholson it's also very funny. He's morning is wife's death seamers putting coal cream on. It's so sad that she was cheating on him and of course he's incensed at. He's just raising a holy hell which is really funny as well at last gold as good as it gets a Michael Lombardi favorite so well done tremendous script from James L. Brooks. Who else could you get to play this character of Melvin Udall OCD? He's got a lot of issues he's massages misanthropic is racist and he cannot help a falling in love with Helen. Hunt the scene in the diner. Ray tells you want to be a better. Man is an absolute beauty as well as the scene at the end where he says. I'm the only person alive that makes realize you? The greatest woman alive is unapologetically romantic. Which movies sometimes you can get into trouble being? But I think it's a beauty Chinatown cuckoo's nest about Schmidt good because it gets runners up by the way reds which I've talked about previously Axel Supporting Performance there with Warren Beatty Hafa. I'm one of the few people that love that movie. It got mixed reviews a huge bomb at the box office. I love it. Most people don't think his performance is great. The shining again you think of indelible. Jack Nicholson performances and Batman. It's not great acting. We're having a blast okay. And as far as the worst of I've seen this on TV recently wolf horrific idea. Mike Nichols great director. Jack Nicholson play. A Wolf is a guy who turns into a wolf dies. I mean that is one of the worst ideas of or my life and as I mentioned missing Jack Nicholson. I've never actually seen the bucket list. Which is one of the last he did that was back in two thousand seven. He also small role. And how do you know which was ten years ago guys? Even moving ten years just loves the Lakers sits at home counts as money. But I've ever seen the bucket list. Maybe I should see it just because I'm missing. Jack Nicholson but I. I don't think it was ending. The phone home about I did not include the departed and a lot of people hate it. Because you think he's performances over the top. I think memorable but I don't think it's one of his best I'm sticking with those four and a got four zero mentions as well. Joe What do you got? I I will agree with you. On one flew over the CUCKOO's nest. I feel like that is a must for him. One of his most iconic roles I will also go with the shining and then I will go the Batman I will say Batman because even after Heath Ledgers performance in the Dark Knight. Jack Nicholson still to me. Is the joker you know. So I'll go the Batman and then it's tough since you want Chinatown. I'll go his breakout role in easy rider. And and I'll make that my fourth and I feel like that's comfortable. You're right departed. That's an honorable mention for me. I really liked him in that movie. An movies create in general but my four are one flew over the CUCKOO's nest Batman the shining and easy rider. So many good movies. I mean I'm a little surprised now that I mentioned a few good men again. You can't handle the truth. Who Doesn't love that movie or pithily that scene and that performance five easy pieces of Gray Bobby Duke Concert Pianist? I particularly love the ending of that movie. How did you bombs along? The Way Mars attacks didn't work out that well the evening star but there's some really good dramas. He made the causing garbage. Sean Penn blood into wine and Michael. Caine the pledges pretty good. I mean he's got a tremendous career. Terms of endearment Kademi award. Never seen that couple years ago Steve. Paris loves playing astronaut again. Surprising romantic. One that I've never seen which I will get to at some point presenter. Nine hundred eighty five. Angelica Huston won an Oscar. Course John Huston's daughter would like to see that at some point. That's our Mount Rushmore. Jack Nicholson let us know sinophile Potter Adnan. Virk where you think we aired where you think we were right now. It's time for total recall. Total recall all right. Total recall is the two thousand five Oscars from two thousand and four really strong year million dollar baby tremendous movie won best picture. I think it was the right choice. Who Else was nominated that year Joe? The Aviator Finding Neverland Ray and sideways. You know much love. Skar says He. But I'm telling you I. I put sideways number two. I think it's an incredible comedy. It's got real heart and emotion incredibly drawn characters strong ending. I mean every single time. You've got stuff here with with Alexander Payne. You know it's going to be strong aviator listen. I just don't think it came from Skar. Says he's heart which is not to say that he's always going to have stories about dark and disturbed characters because certainly Howard uses battling OCD. And I think that the second half is stronger but the first APP is quite light for his films. I I liked the flirtation scenes Cate Blanchett. Who is dead on Katherine Hepburn of the scene? Where his his crash and burn is remarkably directed by Scott. Says I mean you can feel the visceral power of it and for director loves moves as much as he does? You think you'd have more movies about the making of movies which he hasn't really dumb here. You actually see our hawks making hells angels. I liked the aviator. It's not that I love. I appreciate the production design. Obviously the music editing all that kind of stuff. But I don't love it million dollar maybe I love to me the aviator moves your head. Million dollar baby moves your heart like your watch them you think. This is a predictable way. But a female boxer overcoming the odds and then all of a sudden heartbreak and I mean literally feel. Clint Eastwood Lifts Your Spirits. He lifts your heart and they breaks it. There's nothing as satisfying as a great sad movie. This the all time greats sad movies of all time and Eastwood's performance Hilary Swank won an Oscar. Morgan Freeman I mean all of them are perfection and the script tremendous by Paul Haggis. The Canadian obviously later opera crash. And he's was directing is so sparse and lean. He doesn't overplay the music phenomenal. Which again eastwood did million dollar baby to me. I'm telling you that that's what was movies. Joe You can see in the nineteen forties the nineteen fifties his absolutely timeless. I was so happy at one. I one hundred percent agree with you and the academy is such a such a great moving. The such a great point about you make this movie in any decade in that it would still hold up so I agree with you in the academy billion dollar baby one best picture and best director. I agree that Clint Eastwood should have one. Because again I liked his look at the lighting in that movie. Go back and watch million dollar baby in look at the lighting. He's uses shadows so well in. That movie is amazing. How stark it is and just the whole concept listed boxing movies. You've seen in your life. You need. He makes it feel fresh. You can really smell the sweat in the gym. How about j? Barrichello Canadian great small role playing danger and his storyline. The directing is really really. Well done then we does not overplay. It's really kind of. Let's story be the star. It's perfectly direct especially when the moment has to swell when he tells her what mccutcheon means amazing. Who Else was nominated for? Best Director Martin Scorsese for the Aviator Taylor Packard for Ray Alexander Payne for sideways and Mike Lee for veered. Drake wasn't clint. Go Inner Pane because I love sideways Mardi. Ob Three for me. Ackford did a good job with Ray and Mike Surgery. I've never seen in the academy does Love Mike. Though certainly always makes Marilyn moves be behalf surgery and I think of. I think it's me about abortion okay. I think I've seen it. I think the directing with special screen was great. I knew I got not only for script as well all right. Best Actor Jamie Foxx for Ray. Who Else was nominated? Don cheadle hotel Rwanda Johnny Depp for Finding Neverland Leonardo DiCaprio the aviation clint eastwood for Million Dollar Baby Lesson. Fox's awfully good man that guy's tout of gets he can sing. He can move. My one quibble with Ray and I do think he channels the spirit of Charles and shows that even though he has his terrible disability being blind. He's in many ways of a wretch of character mutual relentless womanizer like he just doesn't care obviously so gifted musically and his performance of Egypt grabs that performance by the tail. But honestly I'd give it to Leo. I thought Leo nail that is Howard Hughes particular said battling the OCD the were Aldo puts his thumbprint. The glass and Leo has to fight the urge not to be disturbed by the fact that literally can't leave a bathroom at one point because of the germs and the way that his mind is just losing it. I want an Oscar for the revenue. But I think you should have went to Oscar for the author aviator that'd be my pick. I depth is good Vine Neverland Don cheadle definitely. I'm glad I finally got nominate guys when a good actor for a long time touching performance in hotel. Rwanda and Clint again. I mean listen. He won for best director. Best actor to well the back of his career. But I'd go with Leo Myself. I like that pick I would. I would have been fine with Leo feed. One would have been fine with Clint Eastwood if he had one as well. But I'M GONNA I'M GONNA stick with Jamie Fox in the academy just because you know I think Geoffrey Rush learned how to play the piano for Shine Jamie. Foxx learned how to play the piano blind for array and I thought the movie was kind of an Oscar. Grab but I don't think it was to Jamie Fox's fault so I'll pick him and agree with the academy. Well those are really good point. But you're right about the fact that he could have play a blood. That's a good point. Geoffrey rush great to show. I'm glad you mentioned that movie. And certainly like I said super talented guy. Best ACTRESS HILARY SWANK FOR MILLION DOLLAR BABY. Absolute deserved it. Knock up performance as Maggie. Who Else was nominated Annette? Benning for being Julia got the Lena. Sandino Moreno for Maria full of Grace Imelda Santen for Veer Drake and Kate winslet for Eternal Sunshine of the spotless mind swags a knockout Joe. I Love Eternal Sunshine. So Kate winslet glad she got nominees should have been my second pick. Maria full of grace of for riffing. Gosh Catalina Sandino Moreno. If you haven't seen it plays a drug mule. I made it as heartbreaking when you think these people are dealing in drugs. What they will do for their families swallowing like hundreds of pills getting across the border. I'd forgotten about that movie until Josiah's mentioned the fact. She was nominated. Great Film if you haven't seen it but obviously it's gotta be sweet for me. Yeah I completely agree with you. I would put Caitlyn's Lewis my second as well kind of I kind of which Jim Carey got nominated for best actor now they think about it but I agree with the academy million dollar. Baby Hilary Swank best movie for shore. Absolutely right Kerry should've been nominated well. Let's let's omit Johnny Depp if you could really right forget about finding Neverland. Should've been Jim Carey for Terminal Sunshine. Best supporting actress Morgan Freeman again. It'd be academy nail that they got right playing any scrap iron duprey. Who Else was nominated? Alan? Alda for the gator. Thomas Haden Church for sideways. Jamie Foxx collateral and cliven closer clive. All and you terrific a curb your enthusiasm if you watch this. Most recent season it guys kind of disappeared. A little bit made his name in the film. Croupier. He's got one seen here on me. He's he's just wallowing in despair in distress and he's just mesmerized by now department shrip- and he says what is your taste like. She says like heaven unbelievable. The fact is disgusting. Disturb guy just keeps giving her money just so so filthy. Glad you got nine for closer which is not an easy movie to watch us out once. That's enough for me. Marital people have a lot of screwed up issues forgot that Fox was a double nominee collateral. Always thought once liked it. Let's see it again. My Command and Tom Cruise plan a bag. I would ton of gray hair all the I like to play it back. I mean you always stick out all the plane. A nice guy and national respite. But I thought he was very cunning as Owen Brewster. But it's got to be Morgan Freeman. My second pick would be Thomas Haden church absolute laugh riot. A guy who can't wait to cheat on his wife and it goes out there with Paul. Giamati and endures. Holy cow with Sandra Swing. A motorcycle helmet is face amazing. Because you think he's just a one note cad you think he's just some horny guides screwing around like a frat boy relating his life but the see where he forgot his wedding. He starts crying. Ms Shows you how guy like this. He's pathetic at the same time. In addition to be a Guy. Who's trying to you? Know walks down the aisle. Thomas hadn't churches great and side. Which boggles Morgan Freeman? Y'All Morgan Freeman as well. And I'd just love Alan alda too. I might give him just because he exists as a person named Noel L. in Alda. But I'm looking at this again. Do you think that Paul Giamati should have been nominated for best actor this year? Yeah absolutely no. You're right now you're right. We should have carry there. Should G Ahmadi. If we could redo this now I think I'd go Jamie Fox to Capri. Oh Clint Eastwood and I take out. Don Take Johnny Depp and I put in Giamatti Anjem. It's tough to take a cheadle movie but you're right. Gimondi AND SIDEWAYS. Never better yeah. He's so good. I wonder what I wonder what politics took place in Hollywood this year. That kept him out because it seems like they should have been should have been on. I agree and I think Johnny Depp and finding Neverland does like a Scottish accent or something. I don't need that from him. He can just do an American. You know you're right. Maybe that was the issue. The Scots are the heavy. Vote that your best supporting actress. Kate Blanchett Pitch. Perfect is Katharine. Hepburn nailed that boys which is often imitated never duplicate. I'm agreeing of the Academy of the six categories. I think they got five of them right. Who Else was nominated? Yes our girl Laura Linney for. I love it Laura. Linney Kinsey Virginia Madsen for sideways. Sofi Com nitto for tell Rwanda and Natalie Portman for closer sometimes. The supporting actress category feels weaker. I think that's a strong as any category this year. I mean all five of those performances lenny fantastic and Kinsey supporting your husband's sex researcher Liam Neeson Madsen amazing sideways. A scene where she's falling in love with Paul Giamati gets repulsed when she finds it what his best friend is up to Okinawan hotel. Rwanda seeing all the devastation. There and Portman as I mentioned playing the stripper. Who just learning in clive own. And she's she's like a Hornet lowering them in and then blanche's perfect. Well the Shraga issues. I've ever seen for supporting actress. Very Waldo by the academy. I'm GonNa Cate Blanchett Joe me too. I agree with the academy. I think I've agreed with the academy forever. Category so far right now enclosed also very very good so but I'll go cate Blanchett for sure. Yeah you're right about green the academy because I'M GONNA agree with them on screenplays as well best original screenplay was yes Charlie Kaufman on the Michelle Gandara and Pierre Bismuth for their Turtle Sunshine of the spotless mind who else was nominated. The Aviator John Logan Hotel Rwanda Kerry George Incur- Pearson the incredible 's Brad Bird and Vera. Drake Mike Lee with your love of animation. I know you're GONNA try to give it to Brad Bird but come on Charlie Kaufman. The Guy Should Oscar for every movies written. I feel like he's so smart and so different. Eternal Sunshine. Great Script. One hundred percent agree. That's one of my favorite movies. Michelle dream what he was able to do with that script. Incredible Feat L. have to agree with the Academy Eternal Sunshine of the spotless. Mind all right how `bout best adapted screenplay. We have sideways. Who took home the trophy that year before sunset finding neverland million dollar baby and the motorcycle diaries life before sunset a lot? Especially because He Ethan. Hawke got nominated for an Oscar Wilde. Love him link later delpy and Kim Krizan so four nominees there and I like before sunset more than I like before sunrise. I'm telling you it's tough to vote against million dollar baby just a knockout from Paul Haggis. The Motorcycle Diaries. I was not crazy about. I do remember seeing it. I thought it was all aimless for my tastes sideways. About as funny as it gets. I mean that is a funny movie. But it's also very precise and very perceptive. I know some people who didn't like it who said that it was just every film critic love because he's playing plank film critic. He's bearded depress bald man. Who's you know? Lost Low of his life trying to that. Nobody wants to publish. The course. Critics brought loved it. That's the critics are like I think sideways is amazing particularly the ending. I mean it doesn't. It doesn't lose any steps. It doesn't get unnecessarily. Hokey or sentimental is very true to life. It's very authentic. And you see guys like this all the time when Jia modern finds out that is x is now not only. Mary is at the wedding but expecting a baby. The way tries to conceal that emotion. I mean God you're right. It's a crime he wasn't nominated. I'm glad the script one because that's seen as so well written and so precisely handled by Alexander Payne. I don't disagree with you. I am going to go with million dollar baby but sideways is such a such a great movie and script I will I will agree with you on the motorcycle diaries. I love the book but I didn't think the movie did justice to to shake Rivera's memoir so I will go with million dollar baby but sideways definitely deserving of the award all right eight categories and I agreed with seven of the categories best picture best director best actress supporting actress. Supporting actress and screenplays disagree with the best actor. Inner Caverns the Joan. I really agree the Kademi this year. All right once again next week. You're on sinophile. Hbo Mini Series. I know this much is true. Starring Mark Ruffalo body double from Brian Depalma and probably Rami as well. Alone may hold off until next time. Thank you so much for listening with special guests at Canadian director of the new movie coming out so until then I'll see you at the movies.

"Now another addition of Tony till auto on CY FI talk. From, Lord of the Rings. Abraham. votes. Julian. Sounds as creepy man. Who Your Mazda Someone I to perhaps. Wow Hey that's great. Appreciate you. My guy the Archangel Gabriel is. Really. What is most important? Is that Burnham forgives herself. Because as Burnham, my carry a tremendous amount of guilt and shame on name is Alex Zahara played read God's Zales to. Iron Shirt. The one I own US freaky leaders. Allman Kokatay. Talk. A typical. Behavior. Special. Effects. What's it like curfew you both to kind of. Things that aren't there well, sometimes, you have an experience anyway. Like gone. In part because of the hopeful nature of genes vision but also because of its message of diversity and inclusion. Wrong and prosper. High Today on Sci Fi talk, we have Lou Diamond Phillips. Maybe. You're lucky enough to have seen him on television and his many roles and films, and also maybe you were one of the lucky ones to have seen him on Broadway in the king and I. But now he is venturing in a new area. He has a new book science fiction book which gets my attention obviously, and it is tinderbox soldier of Indira. Welcome Mr Phillips. It's great to talk to you about this. Thank you so much. Thanks for having me. What was the inspiration for this? Quite honestly it was my wife. Often. Required to say that but when Yvonne and I started dating you know we were getting to know each other and I discovered that she is an absolutely amazing graphic artists She's an amazing illustrator When we met, she was a makeup hair you know artists and We actually met on a film shoot in Vancouver Canada and then started dating and you know as I got more familiar with reward came across a series of. Illustrations that she had drawn in anime style of she has basically you know to really I think distinct styles one she used to be a big fan of anime, but she also was a big fan of that sort of, German would cut style. Yeah that that that's a bit of a throwback and and a bit of lodge to. Growing up. Germany. So she had done these anime Inspired from Hans Christian Andersen's. Fairy Tale the tinderbox and mmediately struck by them, and then one of the things that I that I thought was. Wow. This kind of moves it out of that. Setting and into his own kind of time and place and to me it automatically. So like a post apocalyptic world, and so we chatted about it a little bit and then I stole the idea and the idea originally was to to do a Suma and because you know Sifi is is at least then was a little bit more viable you know in the entertainment industry fantasy. Game of thrones obviously, it's changed everything but at the time you know Avatar was a big hits star wars getting a resurgence There was there was a lot of Scifi out there and we thought if we're GONNA make movie, this is the way to go. But when I finished writing the screenplay to that movie. We realized that it was so darn expensive nobody was going to hire meteorite get. In conversations with Yvonne and also some advice for manager jv Roberts we thought. Okay. Well, let's let's establish the world and and have total authorship. As opposed to just selling screenplay and and that's where the book was born and it really became its own creature Once I started writing a narrative. not not that it deviated from the original ideas and screenplay, but it's certainly built upon them and became I think much more of the of a complete journey are and I have written. You know ever since I just happened dabbled as much in in the narrative form so. You know it's it's nice to get back to that and I do kind of embrace it fully. Excellent. So your main character, Everson and I will say I always love reluctant heroes. You know we we. We certainly have gotten enough of heroes just go in and. Just go right into a reluctant heroes I think are more interesting. Tell us a little bit more about him. Well, it's interesting because I mean when you know they, they should write what you know. The wonderful thing about sci-fi to me is that it can be very allegorical it could be metaphorical You know going back to the time of Aristotle you know, why do you set things against the background of war It's because you can talk about great. Issues of character of nobility of of courage bravery all of that and a hero's journey you know goes all the way back to oedipus not oedipus Odysseus. You know being a multi-ethnic person I thought. Well, that's that's something that you know could could play into this and be informative as to the character. It's also had its Romeo and Juliet aspects to which a young forbidden love and and whatnot like some recent iterations of it. You know whether it's west side story or whether it's you know some some of the more recent contemporary infused Romeo and Juliet. You know there is the ratio aspect in which is very relevant today. So in in developing Everson I, I was looking at all of these. Touchstones, if you will all of these inspirations and and trying to take the basic story of a soldier, which is you know what Hans Christian Andersen starts with. Developing that into as you said, a hero's journey but a reluctant huge journey whether that's Peter Parker. BILBO BAGGINS try and it becomes that much more interesting. And you mentioned the Romeo and Juliet aspect and that's with the king's daughter Allegra. And of course, he's a mad king. Chander what? Some, kings are mad. That's just the way it is. How does your relationship start off How do they get off on the right foot? Maybe. Well. What's interesting about this story and again it's It's taking some some old chestnuts, old troops if you will and trying to weave them into a story that is still relevant. So contemporary it's you know as you said, it's a Fi because it said in space and so therefore has a somewhat star wars fuel to it You know because it's it's this grand battle Between civilizations and unlikely Hero. All bitter, also very heavily on a prophecy. So and you know there's a prophecies that should process Allegra wet a common soldier than the reign of things under the firm will end. So with that proposition, zander has imprisoned his daughter you know much like Rapunzel or something and and removed all of the soldiers from the capital city we start off with that and and the the eventual chain of events that bring these two together You know not exactly GonNa. Cute at the mall. Six. Sticks are much more a high. Much higher than that so It all sort of plays into this this plot of a prophecy and will eventual peace happened between the kingdoms. Now, when you were writing this, did Yvonne do the sketches and drawings I? Or did she do them after you had written? She actually wait until I finished writing hotel because it was. Through the different iterations and this was you know a massive education for me you know? The first the first pass through when I wrote and. I thought. Well, that's it. Isn't it? I'm done. That is not what happened I you know took another pass on my own going from beginning to end and then acquired an agent who gained some more notes, and then when on books picked it up obviously I acquired a dairy capable writer. Editor in Rep Bruno. And went through and and and another pass, and so just making sure that She was working off of accurate information. She waited until I was all done What was really nice though is that is that we went through and read the book from beginning to end together oftentimes with reading aloud so that she would have the ability to sort of just imagine and go off in that direction, and so all of the illustrations the came after the fact came after came after the text was locked How was your regimen for writing? Are you a writer that? That sets aside time every day or does it kind of come to you at different times? It was really interesting process and and it took quite a while I mean. To get to this point it's interesting evidence father's king laws the forty seven under a lot of Easter eggs by the way throughout the book Little Winston nods to. Pop Culture and literature and everything else. But the fact that he is King Rosza the forty seven this because I started this process when I was forty seven years old I'm not that. I had actually written the CIA. I've written the screenplay and then we decided to do this. And then went back to that I wrote a chapter wooded away eventually showed Craig Johnson because I was doing the series long Myron. Times right. He's quite a wonderful. You Know Author Best New York. Times. bestselling author of the Industries I showed him the first chapter and it was one of those am I wasting my time moments and it was you know credit and his wife Judy's encouragement and support that got me to you know move forward with it. You know as I said I was doing that series at that time and I've been very fortunate that I've been. Pretty well employed all the time as an actor for you know, thirty something years. So my day job gotten away. Quite a bit. During the edits for instance I mean I'm working on prodigal son now and we'll go back and do the the second season shortly. But I mean the the last round of edits it's I was literally doing onset. I kept the computer in my dressing room and had a notepad with that. I took to the actual set to jot down ideas there. You know there are times you know that I sit donegal start writing today and I'm GonNa get in. As much time as I can there are other times where I I literally have to let it marinate you know the new, the new chapter whatever new piece of business, your dialogue, and that's why I'll always keep a notepad close by job those down so that I can eventually stitch them together. Do you know some semblance of fabric? Well, there you go. Men Can multitask So there you go ladies you know you're not the only ones. There's more with Lou diamond. Phillips. A New Sifi author you might recognize. Back on Fi talk with Lou Diamond Phillips here's more of our conversation I love audio and I know you've done your share audio books boy. This would be a good one for you to do since especially, this is yours. Yes but and this is interesting I. Mean it it became one of those. Moments where I saw what's best for the book you in a lot of aspects of of the creative world especially the wolves that I come from the theater or television or film but whatever the very, very collaborative and the project only become better with input from from very good very creative people very talented people and so there was discussion early on you know when the when it was discovered that the book was going to be published on a ticket us like well should. I do you know the the audio? Book and we went back and forth on that for a while and because I don four Tom Clancy's by now. The top wolf that was really wonderful. Nearly a dozen other you know books, industries, and whatnot. and. We made the decision to to take us out of my hands. You know to to put it in the hands of someone else and get. Know allow them to interpret it allow them to to bring their talents to the fore and especially since you even though I started a university like the movies like Supernova I, you know what you would call a cornerstone of the sci-fi community, and so the decision was made to go to RC Bray, and Julia Wheelin. Matt Yeah and I am absolutely ruled with that I've spoken with them. I've listened to them. No read some of the material and it's it's ridiculously exciting I mean they both have an immense amount of street credit When it comes, you know especially to this genre and I'm also thrilled that you know because because the book as we talked about his told multiple points of view whether they'd be ever since or Allegra. or any of the other supporting characters there is a definite. Between male and female perspective and That's exactly how are C. and juilliard went. You approach it you know Julia will read all of the female centric chapters and sections and are she will voice ever since that a lot of the other male characters. So I think that is unique and very interesting, and once again provides I dunno kind of an out. Of. The box approach to this entire project you know I've said it from the beginning of the book itself is a little difficult to pigeonhole because yes, it's I five because it's at Myspace, but it has staticy elements. It has this classic elements you know because of the Christian Anderson Yeah and and because it's a Romeo and Juliet story, you know. That it's Waie story as well. So you know you sort of it sort of defies genre at this point which which I'm pretty thrilled about. That's great. Yeah. They are seen Bray I've heard his name come up more than a few times and I've heard his work. He's pretty amazing. and. I. Do love the dual voices two now normally. If wearing for Covid, you could go on a book tour if you had time but at least do a few signings but obviously. That's not going to happen these days. So I guess that's Probably one of the. Things about covert that we all have to adjust. A hundred percent I mean the world has changed at this point I would have been you know a couple of months into filming the second season we classically started going yeah. Why And also Yeah I was planning on it. I mean last year there were there were definite plans to to like any other. You know hit the road man to get out there and do the facetime. The fans and whatnot and that's changed hugely a couple of dear friend of mine that I that I credit you know in my acknowledgements I mean I've already mentioned Craig Johnson but Christopher Gillian author of the flight attendant Jin Red Lotus in just you know once again in multiple New York Times bestseller, they both had to cancel book tours that that there just weren't going to happen and they both had to become very clever and nimble in how they get worried. About their books out there, we just did a virtual longmire days, which is you know for the world series and and Chris Books. You know in which we did you know panels and QNA's and just discussion Craig and I. Both talked authoring you know together, which is odd because you know this, this is the old hand and I'm I'm the new guy. So you know we we've had to get creative you know how and how we get it out there would. You, know at the same time this this was I take this very seriously. This. Is something that. I've wanted to give my time to that. I've wanted to get out and promote and and WHO's the of it is a book. Doesn't you know? Obviously has launched number coming out October twentieth but you know it's it's does not necessarily work like a opening weekend for a movie. You know we'll see you on the shelf for a long time. Maybe once all this is done, maybe the first part twenty, twenty, one I can do that I can actually start getting out a little bit more and do and doing some signings and doing some some readings. I like nothing better than to read a chapter to a room full of people and that would be fantastic. You know as far as prodigal son wanted a things that I liked right off the bat was the relationship with your character, a royal, and also young Malcolm and the connection they had. Well, he saved his life. So I, did like that and how that translated to when they were older. I thought that was a really cool relationship. That is one hundred percent grabbed me about the character I I. Mean I've played a bunch of cops before I have turned down a bunch of top walls. because. I just not only do I not want to do the same thing over and over in success you end up playing this character for years and and so you better like it from the outset the relationship that royal has with Malcolm and the fact that more and more is revealed as it goes along that he has basically become you know his surrogate father that you know yeah. That that he is the good angel on on album shoulder as opposed to the bad angel represented by serial? Killer. Dad Played by Michael. Sheen. There, there's more than the procedural. There's more than the brass tacks with this character in that that for me is an accusation interesting and keeps retreating and. Lets me know that there are many many more places for him to go in subsequent seasons i. kind of like a tug of war that Malcolm is being pulled by his father and your character back and forth it's you're trying to keep him on the straight and narrow and his father is you know, let's work together. Let's do this. You know that kind of tightening. So that's a nice tug of war I like that. It is great and then obviously having Gill has to to walk that tight rope of of nearing about and being there for him and and motivating using his talents you know. To good for the police force, but he but he's like any Stepdad. Only take that so far he can only have so much ownership. You know there before he's crossed the line and then so you know and and also there's the line of well I I'm helping Malcolm Channel All of these are tendencies that he has but I'm also putting them in harm's way and you know triggering him when it comes to to all of this terrible stuff Their murder mysteries after all. So it's it's it's a complex and interesting character You know have to credit US Latino for two roles I. Think Awesome and. The Bomba of course, and and also standing deliver I thought both of those really addressed something working with the great at James Almost. Two was he was just amazing and you all were in that film but those are two really cool roles at. Any actor would kill for and you did a great job in both I I was very fortunate and what's amazing about those shows I mean they're both over thirty years old now. The Nichols still stand up and be seen all the time and they are. Both. They were both so iconic and so I think important. To not only independent film but you the you know the let filmmakers that they have both been inducted into the National Film Registry they've they're both considered you know hers if you will and the AF I pitched in and deliver a as one of its you know top one hundred inspirational films as well. So you know, yeah, I was proud and You know at the time when you're younger, you don't really know. Each follow your nose and go with your instinct and looking back on now I truly realize how lucky I was. Oh Yeah now you've directed on television agents of shield comes to mind ti has your schedule when production resumes is that something that you can do this year as well? Well, not for anything else. I'll directing an episode of product which extreme Nice excited about yeah. I mean, what gas what an amazing or writers or fantastic so I'm really looking forward to that the last thing I direct it was the agents of shield which was extremely proud of and there's a lot. I guess the most rerun recently or or Clark. said something Greg. Clarkin. Greg. Theory. To I. he recently said Nice things about that particular episode. So there was. Discussion on social media about it, but I was actually supposed to directing episode of Blue Bloods Yeah last January well, then prodigal son got picked up for the back nine of our schedule which we didn't know you know it's all booked be when I booked the blue bloods. So you know I mean sadly enough those are I won't problems but. I do enjoy the directing j just like writing sometimes takes a back seat to the acting. Well, you are blessed with features that you can play a multitude of ethnic roles and. That's pretty amazing to be able to to slip into those skins play these these different characters you know. I'm very I'm very. Honored by that and and I take that very seriously I I was actually just talking to a bunch of students. Tom Muscles you wrote and produced standing deliver is the professor at the University of Miami and the I q name was them by Zoom? You know just a couple of days ago. When one of the things that that? I think is important is is that I was talking about with them is to have specificity in your research and to to approach you know any but certainly real life characters with respect and with integrity and whenever representing community you know whether it's you know mexican-american or if it's Navajo Lakota Cheyenne have as I did and mom a long bone, it's important to go to the source and to do learn you know what the specifics are and not just kind of give this their sats generic performance and and so I've always always done that and one of the greatest compliments that I that I ever got. I did that I wrote actually called ambition but I did not direct. And my leading lady was too soon teck. Father was the legendary Gregory Peck. I was able to have dinner with them. One night and Gregory said to me Lou you put me in mind of my good friend Tony Quinn. And that's true. One of the greatest compliments I could ever receive because I, you know I I, I'll accept it. I will accept that mantle. I will accept that torch because Anthony Quinn was one of the first people who played many different communities you know from you obviously let the to Greek to anyway. and two other native roles, and any always did it with APLOMB and he did it with dignity and a you know that's that's certainly the path that I. Hope. I followed. That's Greg Company. Guns of Navarine they were in that film together. Pretty Classic Film. I gotta ask you. This book is done is your chance. You might go back to this world and play around with a little more. There is not. It's happening as we speak. Yeah Yeah You know it's it literally is A result of positive reinforcement you know they want you. If you want your kid to excel something, you know your traces them and and that's exactly what's happened though a lot of the advanced refuse had very, very good. and more than a few of them mentioned that they loved this world that they wouldn't mind visiting again. From. The beginning Yvonne and I my wife always thought that it would be the possibility of the people I. Just I just didn't know what it would be and I have to say that you know just like you gone those traditions inspired me before it was Yvonne who came up with the broad strokes of of of a another story I literally working on that as we speak. So there will be a sequel to this book. Using. There might be more than one. I. Take. You know I i. hear it all. Would all indications so far are that the book will be well received and that people enjoy it I don't want to assume too much and I and I certainly you know I like to aspire to to the old adage if you know leave them wanting more since there's so far has been demand I. Think we've come up with a very, very satisfactory story to the second one. We'll. We'll see we'll see what transpires after that. That sounds great I, really WANNA. Thank you for being on the podcast and talking to you you know about your career and you know your your first and definitely not your last venture into writing especially in science fiction which I'm totally thrilled about obviously. But best of luck with us. Thank you so much. I really appreciate your time Sir. Anytime and the book is called the tinderbox driven deer and it's by Lou Diamond Phillips and yes, it's available wherever you get your books and the hardcover will be out in October so. That tactile experience I know we love evokes but that tactile experience or holy book in your hand. And and I and I think Yvonne's illustrations Served in hardcover as a matter of fact. The complete collection will be in the hardcover with the there may not be the entire collection MVP book I. Think we'RE GONNA GIVE A.

In part because of the hopeful nature of genes vision, but also because of its message of diversity and inclusion. Wrong and prosper. High Today on Sci Fi talk, we have Lou Diamond Phillips. Maybe, you're lucky enough to have seen him on television and his many roles and films, and also maybe you were one of the lucky ones to have seen him on Broadway in the king and I. But now he is venturing in a new area. He has a new book science fiction book which gets my attention obviously, and it is tinderbox soldier of Indira. Welcome Mr Phillips. It's great to talk to you about this. Thank you so much thanks for having me. What was the inspiration for this? Quite honestly it was my wife. Often Required to say that but when Yvonne and I started dating you know we were getting to know each other and I discovered that she is an absolutely amazing graphic artists She's an amazing illustrator When we met, she was a makeup hair you know artists and We actually met on a film shoot in Vancouver Canada and then started dating and you know as I got more familiar with reward came across a series of. Illustrations that she had drawn in anime style of she has basically you know to really I think distinct styles one she used to be a big fan of anime, but she also was a big fan of that sort of German would cut style. Yeah that that that's a bit of a throwback and and a bit of lodge to. GROWING UP Germany. So she had done these anime Inspired from Hans Christian Andersen's. Fairy Tale, the tinderbox and. mmediately struck by them, and then one of the things that I that I thought was. Wow. This kind of moves it out of that. Setting and into his own kind of time and place and to me it automatically. So like a post apocalyptic world, and so we chatted about it a little bit and then I stole the idea and the idea originally was to to do a Suma and because you know Sifi is is at least then was a little bit more viable you know in the entertainment industry fantasy. Game of thrones. Obviously, it's changed everything but at the time you know Avatar was a big. star wars getting a resurgence There was there was a lot of Scifi out there and we thought if we're GONNA make movie this is the way to go. But when I finished writing the screenplay to that movie. We realized that it was so darn expensive and nobody was going to hire meteorite get. In conversations with Yvonne, and also some advice for manager jv Roberts we thought. Okay. Well, let's let's establish the world and and have total authorship. As, opposed to just selling screenplay and and that's where the book was born and it really became its own creature Once I started writing a narrative. not not that it deviated from the original ideas and screenplay, but it's certain built upon them and became I think much more of the of a complete journey are and I have written. You know ever since entice I happened dabbled as much in the narrative form so. You know it's it's nice to get back to that and I do kind of embrace it fully. Excellent. So your main character, Everson and I will say I always love reluctant heroes. You know we we. We certainly have gotten enough of heroes just go in and Just, go right into a reluctant heroes. I, think are more interesting. Tell us a little bit more about him. Well. It's interesting because I mean when you know they, they should write what you know. The wonderful thing about sci-fi to me is that it can be very allegorical it could be metaphorical You know going back to the time of Aristotle you know, why do you set things against the background of war is because you can talk about great. Issues of character of nobility of of courage bravery all of that and a hero's journey you know goes all the way back to etiquettes a night out a odysseus. You know being a multi-ethnic person I thought well, that's that's something that you know could could play into this and be informative as to the character. It's also had its Romeo and Juliet aspects to what's a young forbidden love and and whatnot like some recent iterations of it. You know whether it's west side story or whether it's you know some some of the more recent contemporary infused Romeo and Juliet you know there is the ratio aspect in which is very relevant today. So in in developing Everson I, I was looking at all of these. Touchstones if you will all of these inspirations and and trying to take the basic story of a soldier, which is you know what Hans, Christian Andersen starts with. Developing that into as you said, a hero's journey but a reluctant huge journey whether that's Peter Parker Bilbo. Baggins try and it becomes that much more interesting. and. You mentioned the Romeo and Juliet aspect and that's with the king's daughter Allegra. And of course, he's a mad king. Chander. Some kings are mad. That's just the way it is. How does your relationship start off? How do they get off on the right foot maybe. Well what's interesting about this story and again it's It's taking some some old chestnuts old troops if you will and trying to weave them into a story that is still relevant. So contemporary it's you know as you said, it's a Fi because it said in space and so therefore has a somewhat star wars fuel to it You know because it's it's this grand battle Between civilizations an unlikely Hero. All bitter also rest very heavily on a prophecy. So and you know there's a prophecies that should process Allegra wet a common soldier than the rain of things under the firm will end. So with that proposition zander. Imprisoned his daughter. You know much like Rapunzel or something and and removed all of the soldiers from the capital city we start off with that and and the the eventual chain of events that bring these two together You know not exactly GonNa cute at the mall. Six sticks are much more a high. Much higher than that so It all sort of plays into this this plot of a prophecy and we'll eventual peace happened between the kingdoms. Now when you were writing this did Yvonne do the sketches and drawings I or did she do them after you had written? She actually wait until I finished writing hotel because it was. Through the different iterations and this was you know a massive education for me? You know The first the first pass through when I wrote and I thought. Well, that's it. Isn't it? I'm done. That is not what happened I. You know took another pass on my own going from beginning to end and then acquired an agent who gained some more notes, and then when on books picked it up obviously I acquired a very capable writer. Editor in Rep Bruno. And went through and did another pass and so just making sure that She was working off of accurate information. She waited until I was all done What was really nice though is that is that we went through and read the book from beginning to end together oftentimes with reading aloud so that she would have the ability to sort of just imagine and go off in that direction, and so all of the illustrations the came after the fact came after came after the text was locked How was your regimen for writing? Are you a writer that? That sets aside time every day or does it kind of come to you at different times? It was really interesting process and and it took quite a while I mean. To, get to this point it's interesting evidence father's king laws the forty seven under a lot of Easter eggs by the way throughout the book Little Winston nods to. Pop Culture and literature and everything else. But the fact that he is King Rosza the forty seven this because I started this process when I was forty seven years old, I'm not. I had actually written the CIA I've written the screenplay, and then we decided to do this. And then went back to that I wrote a chapter wooded away eventually showed Craig Johnson because I was doing the series long Myron. Times right he's quite a wonderful. You Know Author Best New York Times bestselling author of the industries I showed him the first chapter, and it was one of those am I wasting my time moments and it was you know credit and his wife Judy's encouragement and support that got me to you know move forward with it. You know as I said, I was doing that series at that time and I've been very fortunate that I've been. Pretty well employed all the time as an actor for you know, thirty something years. So my day job gotten away. Quite a bit. During the edits for instance I mean I'm working on prodigal son now and we'll go back and do the the second season shortly. But I mean the the last round of it's I was literally doing onset I kept the computer in my dressing room and had a notepad with me that I took to the actual set the jot down ideas there. You know there are times you know that that I sit donegal cameras start writing today and I'm GonNa get in. As much time as I can There are other times where I I literally have to let it marinate you know the new the new chapter whatever new piece of business your dialogue, and that's why I'll always keep a notepad close by job those down so that I can eventually stitch them together and do you know some semblance of fabric? Well, there you go. Men Can multitask So there you go ladies, you know you're not the only ones. There's more with Lou Diamond Phillips, a new Sifi author you might recognize. Back on Fi talk with Lou Diamond Phillips here's more of our conversation I love audio and I. Know You've done your share audio books boy this would be a good one for you to do since especially, this is yours. Yes but and this is interesting. I mean it it became one of those. Moments where I saw, what's best for the book you in a lot of aspects of of the creative world especially the wolves that I come from the theater or television or film but whatever the very, very collaborative and the project only become better with input from from very good, very creative people very talented people and so there was discussion early on you know when the when it was discovered that the book was going to be published on a ticket us like well, should I do you know the the audio book and we went back and forth on that for a while and because I don four Tom Clancy's by now The top wolf that was really wonderful. Nearly a dozen other. You know books, industries, and whatnot. And we made the decision to to take us out of my hands. You know to put it in the hands of someone else and get you know allow them to interpret it, allow them to to bring their talents to the fore and especially since you even though I started a university like the movies like Supernova I, you know what you would call a cornerstone of the sci-fi community, and so the decision was made to go to RC Bray and Julia Wheelin. Matt Yeah and I am absolutely ruled with that. I've spoken with them. I've listened to them. No read some of the material and it's it's ridiculously exciting i. mean they both have an immense amount of street credit When it comes, you know especially to this genre and I'm also thrilled that you know because because the book as we talked about his told multiple points of view whether they'd be ever since or Allegra or any of the other supporting characters there is a definite shift between male and female perspective and. That's exactly how are see and juilliard went you approach it you know Julia will read all of the female centric chapters and sections and are she will voice ever since that a lot of the other male characters. So I think that is unique and very interesting, and once again provides I dunno kind of an out of the box approach to this entire project you know I've said it from the beginning of the book itself is a little difficult to pigeonhole because yes, it's I five because it's at Myspace, but it has staticy elements. It has this classic elements you know because of the Christian Andersen. And and because it's a Romeo and Juliet story, you know. That it's Waie story as well. So you know you sort of it sort of defies genre at this point which which I'm pretty thrilled about. That's great. Yeah. They are seen Bray. I've heard his name come up more than a few times and I've heard his work. He's pretty amazing. And I do love the dual voices two now normally. If wearing for Covid, you could go on a book tour if you had time but at least do a few signings but obviously. That's not going to happen these days. So I guess that's that's probably one of the. Things about covert that we all have to adjust. A hundred percent I mean the world has changed at this point I would have been you know a couple of months into filming the second season we classically started why And also yeah I was planning on it. I mean last year there were there were definite plans to to like any other. You know hit the road man to get out there and do the facetime and then be fans and whatnot, and that's changed hugely a couple of dear friend of mine that I that I credit. You know in my acknowledgements I mean I've already mentioned Craig. Johnson but Christopher Gillian author of the flight attendant Jin Red Lotus in just you know once again in multiple New York, times bestseller, they both had to cancel book tours that that. There just weren't going to happen and they both had to become very clever and nimble in how they get worried about their books out there. We just did a virtual longmire days, which is you know for the world series and and Chris Books. You know in which we did you know panels and QNA's and just discussion Craig and I both talked authoring you know together, which is odd because you know this is this is the old hand and I'm I'm the new guy. So you know we we've had to get creative you know how and how we get it out there would. You know at the same time this this was I take this very seriously. This is something that. I've wanted to give my time to that I've wanted to shoot get out and promote and and who's the beauty of it is a book. Doesn't you know obviously has launched number coming out October twentieth but you know it's it's does not necessarily work like a opening weekend for a movie. You know we'll see you on the shelf for a long time. Maybe once all this is done, maybe the first part twenty, twenty, one, I can do that I can actually start getting out a little bit more and do and doing some signings and doing some some readings. I like nothing better than to read a chapter to a room full of people and that would be fantastic. You know as far as prodigal son wanted a things that I liked right off the bat was the relationship with your character, a royal, and also young Malcolm and the connection they had. Well, he saved his life. So I did like that and how that translated to when they were older I thought that was a really cool relationship. That is one hundred percent. Grabbed me about the character I I mean. I've played a bunch of cops before I have turned down a bunch of walls. Because I just not only do I not want to do the same thing over and over in success you end up playing this character for years and and so you better like it from the outset the relationship that royal has with Malcolm and the fact that more and more is revealed as it goes along that he has basically become you know his surrogate father that you know yeah. That that he is the good angel on on album shoulder as opposed to the bad angel represented by Serial Killer Dad played by Michael Sheen. So. So there there's more than the procedural. There's more than the brass tacks with this character in that that for me is an accusation interesting and keeps retreating and. Lets me know that there are many many more places for him to go in subsequent seasons I kind of like a tug of war that Malcolm is being pulled by his father and your character back and forth. It's you're trying to keep him on the straight and narrow and his father is you know, let's work together. Let's do this. You know that kind of tightening. So that's a nice tug of war I like that. It is great and then obviously having Gill has to to walk that tight rope of of nearing about and being there for him and and motivating using his talents. You know it's. Too Good for the police force but he but he's like any Stepdad Only take that so far he can only have so much ownership. You know there before he's crossed the line and then so you know and and also there's the line of well I I'm helping Malcolm Channel All of these are tendencies that he has but I'm also putting them in harm's way and you know triggering him when it comes to to all of this terrible stuff Their murder mysteries after all. So it's it's it's a complex and interesting character You know have to credit US Latino for two roles I think awesome and. The Bomba of course and and also standing deliver I thought both of those really addressed something working with the great at James. Almost, two was he was just amazing and you all were in that film but those are two really cool roles at. Any actor would kill for and you did a great job in both I. I was very fortunate and what's amazing about both of those shows I mean, they're both over thirty years old now. The Nichols still stand up and be seen all the time and they are. Both they were both so iconic and so I think important. To, not only independent film but you the you know the let's show makers that they have both been inducted into the National Film Registry they've they're both considered you know hers if you will and the AF I pitched in and deliver a as one of its you know top one hundred inspirational films as well. So you know yeah, I was proud and You know at the time when you're younger, you don't really know. Each follow your nose and go with your instinct and looking back on now. I truly realize how Lucky I was. Oh Now you've directed on television agents of shield comes to mind. Ti. Has Your schedule when production resumes is that something that you can do this year as well? Well. Not for anything else. I'll directing an episode of product which extreme. Nice excited about yeah. what gas, what what an amazing or writers fantastic. So I'm really looking forward to that. The last thing I direct it was the agents of shield which was extremely proud of and there's a lot I guess the most rerun recently or or Clark said something Greg Clarkin. Greg. Theory. To, I he recently sets nice things about that particular episode. So there was. Discussion on social media about it but I was actually supposed to directing episodes of blue bloods Yeah last January. Well, then prodigal son got picked up for the back nine of our schedule, which we didn't know you know it's all booked be when I booked the blue bloods. So You know I mean, sadly enough those are I won't problems but. I do enjoy the directing j just like writing sometimes takes a backseat to the acting. Well you are blessed with features that you can play a multitude of ethnic roles and. That's pretty amazing to be able to to slip into those skins play these these different characters you know I'm very I'm very. Honored by that and and I take that very seriously I. I was actually just talking to a bunch of students Tom Muscles you wrote and produced standing deliver is the professor at the University of Miami at the I q name was them by Zoom? You know just a couple of days ago. When one of the things that that? I think is important is is that I was talking about with them is to have specificity in your research and to to approach you know any, but certainly real life characters with respect and with integrity and whenever representing community you know whether it's you know mexican-american or if it's Navajo Lakota Cheyenne have as I did and mom a long bone it's important to go to the source and to to learn you know what the specifics are and not just kind of give this or sats generic performance, and and so I've always always done that and one of the greatest compliments that I that I ever got I did that I wrote actually called ambition but I did not direct. and. My leading lady was too soon teck. Father was the legendary Gregory Peck Man. I was able to have dinner with them one night and Gregory said to me. Lou. You put me in mind of my good friend Tony Quinn. And that's true. One of the greatest compliments I could ever. Receive because I, you know I I, I'll accept it. I will accept that mantle I will accept that torch because Anthony Quinn was one of the first people who played many different communities you know from you obviously let the to Greek to anyway. and two other native rules, and any always did it with APLOMB, and he did it with dignity and a you know that's that's certainly the path that I hope I followed. That's Greg. Company. Guns of Navarine. Film Together Pretty Classic Film. I gotta ask you. This book is done is your chance. You might go back to this world and play around with a little more There is not. It's happening as we speak. Yeah. Yeah you know it's it literally is A result of positive reinforcement. You know they want you. If you want your kid to excel something you know your traces them and and that's exactly what's happened though a lot of the advanced refuse had very, very good. and more than a few of them mentioned that they loved this world that they wouldn't mind visiting again. From the beginning Yvonne and I my wife always thought that it would be the possibility of the sequel I just I just didn't know what it would be and I have to say that you know just like you gone those traditions inspired me before it was Yvonne who came up with the broad strokes of of a of a another story I literally working on that as we speak. So there will be a sequel to this book. Using. There might be more than one. I. Take. You know I hear it all. Would all indications so far are that the book will be well received and that people enjoy it. I don't want to assume too much and I and I certainly You know I like to aspire to to the old adage if you know leave them wanting more since there's so far has been demand I think we've come up with a very, very satisfactory story to the second one. We'll. We'll see we'll see what transpires after that. That sounds great I. Really WanNa.

'Gloria Bell' puts Julianne Moore at the center of the action

"From the Mon broadcast center. Ed KPCC's. This is the frame I'm John horn on today's show what can Spotify. An apple learn from China's music streaming platforms, and does it involve tipping and directors of action lowly, oh didn't plan to remake his to lay in movie, Gloria, but then he met actress Julianne Moore and together they made a nearly shot by shot English version called Gloria bell to you know, what I'm terrified. But it would only do it. If you directly, and then I said or a haired myself same I would only directed if you're in it and that was seat and the band Ilah Bomba celebrate women on their new album who had us all that coming up on the frame. Welcome to the frame. I'm John horn. We've talked a lot on this show about how the recording industry has changed due to streaming platforms like Spotify and apple music. But today we're going to be discussing a couple of streaming platforms. You probably never heard of ten cent music and net ease both are Chinese platforms which cater mostly to domestic artists. But unlike Spotify both have managed to turn a profit even in a country, where music piracy has been rampant for years to find out more. I spoke with Sherry who she's a freelance music and technology writer for outlets like billboard and Forbes, and when I reach her by Skype today, we began with what makes the Chinese music industry different. I think one really interesting aspect of the Chinese industry that the French sheets from what's going on in most western markets. Maybe some of the markets in Asia's Wallace that there's really a holistic view of. Celebrities enough celebrity culture in China. Meaning that if you're one of the biggest singers or music celebrities in China, you're also very likely a really big actor are also very likely pursuing a lot of deals with fashion brands and another smaller comedies, and if I were go to China and listen to music, what would I see that's different from the United States. Is there broadcast radio terrestrial radio record stores? How is the market fundamentally different from what people here might be used to? I do think broadcast and TV still play such an important role. Like singing, contests rapping, contests is this one show called wrap of China. Pizza told you so a lot of people treat that as a gateway from the artist's perspective into the major corporate hip hop world in China in terms of the physical market. I actually don't think CDs and bottle records are really increasing in China doll for showed the dominant mode of music consumption is still streaming and most of that is happening for free. But one thing that is also different is that if you look at the if you look at a given streaming service in China on how people consume music, I think it is much more multi media by default within a singular platform. So if you think about the the average US extreme consumer you might discover a song on Spotify, a non you'd have to go to YouTube to wash the music video whereas on some of the biggest services in China. Let q music you have audio video more fully integrated. And it's awesome. Much for social experience that you can comment on videos and songs and share them with your friends. A lot more easily through the same platform, you reported the China is recorded music industry is growing really quickly, but it's still relatively small, and if you look at the per capita spending, it's only like twenty cents per person per year is that because so much of this. Dreaming is free is that because there's so much piracy a combination of those factors if it were totally legitimate and people were paying for what they're listening to how big could possibly be. I'm not sure if any official numbers published on this fed, if you ask anyone who is active in the Chinese industry in the early two thousands like around two thousand five they would say that consumption digital music exception with essentially ninety nine percent pirated any would have situations where these platforms in companies that are quite big are actually just sourcing their music from or call the cloud locker. Files so essentially like MP three files that were stored in the cloud somewhere downloaded onto their platform, regardless of having any kind of fishing license from the major labels, and it's only within the last night even five years. I would say just like two three years that major labels are now pursuing official licenses and in many cases, exclusive licenses with Alexa, tencent music in net. Use cloud music as well, which are the two biggest platforms in the country. And so I think now that we have that infrastructure in place. I think the industry will grow more quickly. The other thing that you point out is that they're streaming platforms like Netease and ten cent. They're actually signing artists way. A record label would is that part of the trend there that a lot of artists in China are bypassing what we would consider to be the traditional model where you signed to a label label releases your music, and then a streaming service picks it up. Yes. Definitely. And this is so interesting because not just in China and. India you see one of the biggest streaming services in India called seven also running their own essentially, artists management and music marketing company already in addition to a streaming platform distribution platform underspin mostly positive reaction. And I think that the the same is happening in China yet the net use cloud music, assigning direct deals, both with local end with international artists. I think there's this realization that these platforms. Not only have a lot more reach just by nature. But also, they have the digital marketing expertise and the ability to move really quickly and dynamically that traditional labels might not have. I'd like you to explain the idea of tipping, and why that's important to streaming music and China, and whether or not western music companies could emulate that behavior. Yes, definitely. So let's take tencent music as an example. According to their most recent financial report, I think the filing that they put out a head of their appeal launch US December. They revealed that they made over seventy percent of their revenue not from audio streaming but from tipping as low as maybe even a couple of cents so didn't have to be large donations, but the sending money to creator. So they wanted to support for us to they wanted to support. And you see this kind of tipping micro payment dynamic, not just the livestream environment. But even in a downloading environment. I think part of it is distinct China, but I think what other western is extreme platforms. Can learn is that there's a much wider diversity of people's willingness to pay for music into support artists than just the nine ninety nine a month that I feel like a a lot of us are being funneled into sure who is a freelance music and tech. Kreider. She writes for publications including billboard and Forbes, Sherri, thanks so much for coming on the show and get. Gee. Coming up on the frame, how Julianne Moore convinced the bashing lowly, oh to remake his 2013 Chilean film and put her at the center of it. Welcome back to the frame. I'm John horn coming up later this week on the show, captain marvel composer PR to- prac- walks us through how she came up with the music for Marvel's latest superhero film. But now, a movie were the lead, isn't a superhero. She's not even anything that extraordinary, which is part of her and the film's charm. She's Gloria belt and she's played by Julianne Moore. And this clip she talks with her mother played by Holland Taylor. Gonna wake up one morning and find your supper Wintel lobe lady. Just like me not old. You look beautiful. You really do discuss. By in a flash. I know you tell me the same thing every ten years. See what I mean? Loria bell is directed and co written by the Chilean filmmaker Sebastian bellio. It's a remake of his twenty thirteen movie, Gloria, which starred Paulina Garcia in many scenes. Gloria bell is a shot by shot copy of the original Gloria both films are about a divorced woman who spends a fair amount of time and clubs where she really likes to dance. And she's especially fond of nineteen seventies. And eighties disco. Everybody should know that story gainer. I never can say goodbye. And this song. Really, I think sets the mood for your film. How early do you start thinking about music in your film? And why was this the perfect song to start the story with? Well. We love music and film, and I love using songs. And this is the thing that I probably one of the things I enjoyed the most and Gloria bell is in certain ways, kind of like a heathen musical. He's that's that's filled with music and the music plays a role that is not too far away from the role that that that song's play in musical films. You know, they are somehow a commentary on the characters processes or earnings and this song. Well, we tried different songs to open the feeling, but this song, I never can say goodbye something so inviting it feels like an opening and and at the same time the lyrics, again, they are, you know. The very beginning already saying something about the character and the journey that she will live. When you go back, and essentially do a very close follow up to the original film. Do you have a new way of looking at the film? Even if a lot of the shots are very similar does the film change in your mind as you've grown older, and as you are reexamining the character through a different actors is the game of the feeling is to turn a secondary character into an absolute protagonist, so Gloria as character shoot shouldn't serve a film. So to say, you know, what I mean in a normal film. She would be the mother or the wife or the auntie that says, you know, please put your seatbelt on and take care. And then the movie would go with with the sign or with the husband. But in this case the film stays with her. It's a very strong portrait and we see Gloria from every possible angle, and we see her going through the entire emotional spectrum. So the first film was a lot about what pollinator see other. Wonderful actress interpreters, Gloria was doing I have always been very interested in grasping something with the camera that has to do with the intersection between the character, and the actor or actress that is interpreting in this new version is all about Julianne Moore. Some days. I'm not. Everyone. Like, everyone seems the portrait is so so deep, and it never gives her kind of say like room to breathe, you know, we're always following her. She's always framed if you change the actress, if you've changed the woman that is at the center, somehow, the soul of the film, it's modified when we see a character like Gloria in an American film, typically her loneliness and her isolation is a flaw that has to be fixed that there is something missing in her life that needs to be addressed. You have a different approach that glorious loneliness. She's not desperate to solve it. It is who she is. And she understands it, but it's not something that has to be overcome. It's part of her identity, and that seems like a very important choice for you to make because there's so many other people who had tell that story and show that character in a very diff. Light. Well, yeah. I mean, I understand that. There is a prejudiced against loneliness in a society that is obsessed with the marriage, you know, as well as there is a prejudice against age or aging in juice oriented of Sast society. And in this case, the film deals with both subjects there is a certain attitude that the film has towards its character that is more or less kind of like a love letter to her. And I and I tend to admire glorious. Allowed to towards life. She's always again, you know, willing to willing to leave and to dance into she's eager for life. And an and I think that doesn't have necessarily too much to do with finding love, but loving herself on a play the scene from the movie this comes at a dinner party where Gloria has introduced a friend of hers played by John Turturro. And it's a let's just say it's a slightly awkward meal. Let's hear a little bit of a scene and you'll grandfather not and they aren't married. No there. Single very single. What do you mean at this particular moment? Nothing. They're doing nothing new, but one of them just had a meeting with a friend who owns a pet store, and I went very well. Didn't it? An and it has potential to be very lucrative people. Love their pets. What part of town are there? There is such commonplace conversation in this film that it is striking because these are ordinary people having ordinary conversations about ordinary issues. There's nothing heightened about it. And I think that's where the film is the most accessible that these feel like people that you could have been at that dinner. You could have been rubbing shoulders with these people it could be people out of your own life. They're not superheroes. They're not extraordinary people. They're defined by in many ways for the best way there or narrowness. Yes. I think we spectators feel invited to you know, to these rooms to stables two Steelers, we feel welcome. And that's was part of the the idea again there is this tendency to to to make films about great personalities or historical figures or superheroes. But. But there is heroism in daily life. We're talking with Sebastian Lelio about his new film, Gloria bell. There's a long history of American companies remaking foreign language films and often the American films try to recreate or reinvent the original film rather than honor it, so when you're thinking about the difference between recreating and honoring you chose to honor as opposed to change. Why was that important to you? Well, thank you. Because it's the first time I hear it put in those terms, and he's really really expresses. What I tried to. I have to be honest, some companies bought the rights and had the rights for for a while. And they wanted to remake and I was offered to direct the remake up a couple of times. And I always said no because I was well be doing my other films. But then. Do then more became part of the equation and approach you, right? What it was? It was a bit of of of kind of like a funny understanding story. No. Because I was informed by my team that Doolan more has seen the original film loved it. But wasn't necessarily interested in remaking it. Okay. But they said to me, but she wants to meet you and wants to to note to know you and have a coffee with you. So I was very honored. And I went to to to see her and we met and she'd talked like four for an hour passionately about the field about Gloria, and it was very touched by her understanding of the of the character. And of its recent says so towards the end of the meeting I said, well, thank you very much. It's been really an honor to meet you. And I totally get get it. If you don't want to remake, and she said, wait, what are you saying? She said, you know, what I'm terrified. But I would only do it. If you. You directed. And then I said or or a hurt my myself saying, I would only directed if you're in it, and that will sit, and that's how organically it was worn the fact that I am the one, you know, remaking my own films. When you read the nothing came out. I feel that maybe it was a little bit ahead of its time in terms of putting women at the absolute center. And I think that this new version is somehow right in its in its time. It's very timely. So every and things changed in America. So silently, the story of a woman that claims her right to a scene until we heard and respected until he loved became urgent AM shocking. That would suddenly be urgent and not always. So, but yes, you're right. Sebastian Lelio is the writer and director of Gloria bells abashed and thanks for coming in. Great to see you. Thank you so much. Gloria Bel opens in theaters on March eighth. Coming up on the frame, we visit with the indie band Alah Bamba, which weaves Latin rhythms and electron IKA and took its name from the lead. Singers can. You've seen the movie San Andreas, right? Now LeBron beaches stick of off. Got some bad news for you. When the big one hits the rock won't save. You wanna know how to get ready for the next major quake? I'm Jacob Margolis science reporter and host of KABC's new podcast the big one your survival guide prepare yourself. Listen an apple podcasts. Welcome back to the frame. I'm John horn, the indie rock band, eat LA Bamba released a new album this month called heads the Portland based group is led by Mexican American singer songwriter and Qatar lose Lyneham in those when the ban came through L A on a recent tour, the frame contributor, Beto ARCO spoke with Mendoza and her bandmates for this profile. It's a Saturday night at a rate theater in L miracle mile district Lyneham endorser in her band. Alaba MBA or playing a song from their new album critic to full house. The band's music is a solid blend of indie rock, electron, IKA, Latin rhythms and Ambien effects. If you weren't familiar with the group, you might not be able to tell them in does is the front woman. She stands off to one side of the stage and shares many of the vocals keyboardist, but Mendosa dust out she stole an angular. And her multicolored hair is a modified Boca that is long in the back when she cuts lose her voices at times cereal amid dreamy yet deeply soulful. Though, she. He Mendoza's parents migrated from Mexico state of Mitchell Cantu. Redwood City in the bay area after Mendoza was born her parents moved the family to Medford in southern Oregon. She began writing songs in English and Spanish and at age twenty five she moved to Portland Mendoza says writing songs in both languages has been a natural experience like a plant growing. I don't know. I just there's no way I can forget, my culture is just there. I contemplate with it constantly. So it's very beautiful to see how I've just kinda evolved in continued evolve. Come what's up Olympic in Kansas ESE circularity pill when you heal and you move through things you grow in your vote. Mendoza says everything that she heard growing up from the coma of rigour to the ranchera of Vargas. Plus the music scene in Portland has helped her to become who she is today. I just write music. I don't ever think about like a sound or Jonah or whatever, you know. Like, I just kinda do it. Whatever happens, and I definitely have to connect with a heart. If the heart's not behind like like, the expression, you know, that I'm like I can feel into I'm not interested in it offers the band's lead guitarist his been with Ila Bamba for two years. The new album was recorded in his studio in Portland. Oxford says he was impressed with Mendosa Daland from the first time they met. Yeah. I think she has a limitless imagination. Just has so many ideas all the time. Yeah. It's incredible. When after the songs MacOS words fire by the recent empowerment of women and the metoo movement, and those says the subject is nothing new to her feel like just intuitive. I've always felt this way always felt like this confusion about like, why feeling like this thing that you like the female has inherited feeling less than you know, it's really like heart. And then you get used to it, you know, especially like just growing up seeing how some women were getting treated, and it's just normalize. Mendoza says there's something special about being able to express your feelings through sick. And then through sound there's word there's lettera, you know, there's like a a message, and for me, it's always been like a catharsis, and I feel very grateful and privilege that I get to like share that with people, and like, I'm basically just talking about how I'm coming to terms with like my boundaries, you know, with like patriarchy misogyny and wanting to protect my. Mom, and all of us women. Scam. Paciencia? Ramin home. I'm also includes bass player, grace, Buckby and drummer Miguel Jimenez Cruz. Holy Andrey Amanullah is the band's keyboard player and also sings background vocals, she listened to eleven but for many years before recently joining the band, she says, she identifies this song's on the new album really touches a lot of personal things about growing up Mexican American and kind of all the different things that can even mean, and you know, it's titled Luchetti. So a lot of lot of things about being a woman. I think a lot of people that don't have that specific Syrian understand. And I just love the way that the music is super personal like playing it. It's really it felt really easy to learn all the songs because I felt personally emotionally invested. Lyneham dosa has a clear understanding of her role as an artist for her playing and touring with her musician friends comes with responsibility. It's like a form of activism, and I really hope that like while. I'm here, you know, and like doing I'm doing sharing in this way. I can continue to make a difference. And I hope that that like I can continue to, cultivate, family and protect my family during these hard times as for the band's odd name and those recalls when she started uploading music on a long forgotten social network more than ten years ago. I came up with that name because I had a cat named Bomba. And I got her when I was living in Ashland like a month before I moved to Portland, Oregon. And when I started to put my songs on my space, I needed to like Aban name, you know. And I was like what can I band be called? But I was like eleven I didn't wanna put my name. Before name became the symbol of moving to the big city star her career at age twenty five Lyneham, an dosa and her cat. For the frame. That's our show for today.

This this some Asian Shit this is why we spread the virus to America so that Asian people could thrive. Yeah, right exactly. Earth I'm just saying you guys look like even healthier than usual in your quarantine. You're both glowing. I've committed time to my help. Prior to quarantine I did not exercising undue anything for my health like literally a meal aside from like daily walking my dog a bike ride here and there but. Baby. fucking putting these feet to the road I don't know how I'm doing. It I honestly don't know how I was right before like a couple of months before quarantine. I. Realized that all I was doing at the gym was the exercise bike, so I bought an exercise bike. And so. I've been I've just like working out every day. which is one of the only thing? Has it been a journey of self discovery like the Peleton commercials promised you. So, what I did! Is I got the COSTCO BUDGET, Peleton? It's like. It was like I. Don't know I, think it was like three hundred bucks or something at. Does it have any of the Peleton stuff? It has a holder for your IPAD, and then you can download their like budget APP to play like thirty you. It's really it's. It's some grey mass shit, but Yeah I. Like playing poker and riding on the bike, sometimes for our. Riding Their Kirkland. Signature Thanh. Yeah. Yeah, but I get so I guess score, but the other thing that's actually like kind of ridiculous for me is like. I I was going on hiatus from my job any way. I think our last day. Our last day was March sixth so like my actual plan was to like smoke weed on the couch and watch movies every single day for a month anyway. So I'm just like I have not deviated from the plan. It's just the plan, but do you have enough weed in movies for this extended hiatus? I got a we'd delivery. AGO or not cokes a week ago and it was heroin a little bit I like because because I guess when you get weed in California unlike other deliveries these days. They have to physically check your ID. Physically check your ID and they had to physically either take a debit card or so I was like like pull pushing to have a card through the mail slot, and like pushing like it was just like. Ridiculous It was ridiculous. Have you seen any movies that you would recommend? Dirt during quarantine. Yeah. Actually I just watched a movie that I not only lied about watching in college. Pretty. Pretty sure I wrote a paper on it or like. It was like a comparison paper so I I I. Think I watched the other movie, but didn't watch. Wayne Wang's Chan is missing. Okay. and. This is probably wildly irresponsible of me I. Don't think it's available at any legitimate streaming service, but for some reason it's up on Youtube in its entirety so I watched. It's fucking great. It's kind of like a noir takes place in the eighties in San Francisco. And it's like just like, but it's. It's kind of like slacker, so it's just these like to like Chinese goof-balls walking around talking to maniacs in like in like. I think early eighties. San Francisco it's fucking great. That sounds amazing, highly highly recommend. I can't believe you hadn't seen it until now. All Right Andrew. We're GONNA. Get to know you a little bit better in a moment first. We're GONNA. Tell our listeners what we're talking about today. What we're mostly talking about is a goofy movie. We gave you your Simon on Friday. We hope you. Spent the weekend watching and rewatching a goofy movie. We got thoughts we got takes on the goofy movie. We also might talk about the new Fiona. Apple Album de militiamen, Laura Ingram's just. Barn burner of a of a show where she had all the doctors that matter on. at the end of last week all that and probably some more, but I andrew. We like to ask our guest. What is something from your search history? That's revealing about who you are oh man. There's a tiny chance this is. Ben His bed. My search history of the past. I don't remember it's been a while since other show, but my friend started doing a zoom blackjack game. in court teed and. I may have mentioned this before but I. The worst type of card counter in that. I kind of know how to do it, but I definitely can't do it perfectly. I It's like if you fuck up when your car. It's very very bad so I'm like right at the precipice of like sort of stupid overconfident, but I'm not good enough so I was looking up trying to refresh myself on. BLACKJACK card counting. So, that was my story. Just say see could try and get an edge zoom black heck. Yeah exactly to literally cheat by Fred. What are we talking here single deck? He got. Sheep. My friends out of money. Yeah, he has. Two decks it's to focus. Too Much, not too bad. Get your. Memory, palace going yeah, well here, so here's what I will say for anyone I feel any site gang. Interested. You don't actually need to literally remember every card now. Just want to Ma- you just want to remember whether there have been more high cards or low cards played, and when the rich and high cards it's to the players advantage so really you're just yapping. Track of every low card that you see is. Let's say minus one and every high car tends through. ACC is a plus one, and when that running total gets hired than plus three or so you start increasing your bed. God No one in your blackjack game listens to this podcast, right? No, they know they know I can count cards, but. Like hold on, hold on. Hold on the run that back. Yeah, the trick is in a casino. It's easy to do. The trick is like doing it without fucking up ever and yeah, without it being obvious that you're doing it. Right, so yeah, that's like math with your finger in the air in front of you. So what's the by that game? It's low. It's just like like a couple couple of bucks per. It takes them. I mean no. Yeah Yeah Yeah. I mean I. Think this. This is the this is the time we should just zoom casino. The quasi to not league goal online poker site that I play on. Where it's, it's like not legal for them to run it, but technically it's not. Illegal. To use it or lose it. Okay or you have to like put money down up front. Yeah, would right. It's like if it gets shut down. Yeah, yeah, the. Loser. Apparently, the main risk of exposure is technically what I'm guilty of is like a bedding. They're like massive fraud or massive illegal gambling operation. Anyway I don't know it's. It's very common you can. You can find these sites. Finding New Games in the core, but they have. They have had like a big like. This is our plan for covid nineteen and it's. My Man. Your company is one server in the Bahamas. Who gives a shit, what you're covid nineteen plant is I. Bet I bet they put a mask on the server, but. Yeah we only handle the server with gloves on. Yeah, it's it's just like I. Mean I guess if you're a business? That's what you have to do. Is You have to show that you have a plan, but come on the illegal online casino like Commu fucking? I can't I can't wait for like the post mortem on the best worst like company response emails. There's so many fucked up ones that that I've gotten from places that you dislike. I just haven't been able to get off this list yet. And now I need to. What servers you're putting a mascot on. What is something you think is underrated. Andrew, oh? Yes, so one other thing I've been doing to entertain myself. during quarantine is. Not watching the actual movies so I found this youtube channel that I sort of objectively don't think is good, but I've been watching a ton of it. and. It's the video series. Call is called the ending explained, and it's this guy that basically does like if like an eight year old were to explain a movie to you the. Like and then, and then, and then version of a movie, but for like fucked up torture porn horror movies. So I've just at times I'll just leave it on, and they're like twenty minute. It's supposed to be analysis, and there's some analysis, but it's largely like, and then they go to the other core. You would have yeah. It's fucking great. So like so consider even at this time. Whenever was watching? Movies consider not watching the movie. Just the cliff notes version. Weirdly, but I always said that for horror movies like I don't love horror, but I'm always just like. What happened? What's what's The fucking thing, right? Yeah just get it over with yeah! What what something is overrated I? Think I mean I'm guessing. This has probably been said before, but I think I'm done with documentaries. Especially, tiger king kind of like settled it for me where I was like or I should say docu series I think like. Like Insane World Tiger King would have been an hour, and a half would have been on the festival circuit. It would have been like you know like like American movie style like kind of a call classic and It's the. Catch twenty two words. I'm sure they made a billion times more money and way more exposure to this thing by putting it on Netflix and like fucking patting the shit out of it. But I kind of think the best narrative version of I mean tiger king may be headed enough like like twists and turns that there's a little bit more, but it's still like three hours of material honestly like yeah. Yeah Yeah I. Think I. Think we're just like chasing the Dragon. Would that would this content where it's like man? I remember that first week a dragon king and yeah. Yeah, we're like we're trying to find that vein again. Being like Yo it's not hit on the same so now we're doing like these really weird watered down versions that don't matter I'd like I'd like you until your point I feel like we've deficit. If for me personally, the energy I used to get from even thinking about it is completely gone, unlike yeah, I need a new thing. Yeah. I didn't even finish tiger, King. and. Enter, did you? Did you think that Robert Durst was innocent or guilty? So yeah, that's like another one where it's like it's like this one, but it is like it was also to log. I think it was like let's just say. They had to take the full six hours to prove that he did not do it. Well but that that one and tiger carrying. And this feels like a thing that like look, maybe I'm just. Old but like it's feels like like. Partially the influence of Vice Vice News Vice, whatever the vice show is where like the documentarian. Of fucking protagonist in. In the documentary I fucking hate that so much, and it's like Andrew does it yes. and. He looks like a Vegas Magician, so it's like he's hard to look at it as well. Yeah, it's actually part of me. Tiger king feels like. It's a little bit of like. fucking like was Heisenberg uncertainty principle, or whatever, but I'm like yeah I can't say for sure definitively, but it feels like some of the events of tire king would not have happened if your assets. We're not filming them from the jump, and yeah. They specifically say at a certain point. The Jokes Arctic is playing up for the cameras like he's treating his employees worst then he would otherwise for the cameras in a situation where he already treats them like Shit. Yeah, so yeah, I, I agree with that I. Mean it's not obviously. He was a terrible person regardless. Yes, yeah, Andrew Give us a new documentary to pivot to what's. What's if people need to put the Tiger kingship down? What are they need to pick up? God Damn I i. don't know I mean right now. The thing that you should not do is going to be. Oh Man, actually one of my friends is currently like at the behest of her manager, outlining a like a cash. GRAB QUARANTINE ROM COM I'm just like yeah. That was happening right now. We've been talking about it I've been arguing for the horrible inevitable mumble core version of that same movie that will come out. Masked connections? I will say this. I did go on A. facetime hinge date like the second week of Quarantine Heidi. You wear masks. You know what I did. Do is I wore a suit their. Love it's. Doubted faced lean into it candlelit facetime literally I'll I'll I'll send you guys. The photo I took of the Senate. I! I'm very. It was one of those things where I was like. This is like. A dumb idea that made me laugh so hard while I thought of it that I was like I guess I just have to do this and if she she's not down, that's on her. It's not the wine. It really is I was like this is just maximum Andrew so I might just come in hot like. What do you feel like of the quality of communication for something like that because I'm I've you know? I'm really curious if it feels like it's the same thing like what would what do you get? Is it nor shing go on blind facetime date from an APP like what's? The latest World Man Yeah Yeah Yeah so the thing that I found because it was also during the second week or Right lives like day eight or something right, so it was like very early known was used and the thing that struck me. That was really interesting. was that up until then the only people I'd face time with were like like the before times facetime would be kind of a weird sometimes people I have done facetime dates, but it's kind of impersonal, and like wasn't thing, but like that was one week into. If you face someone they were like you're absolute. Loved ones, friends, family, your closest closest people, or at least it was for me so like then taking that mode and putting a stranger into it was fucking. We right and it felt like super. Yeah, yeah, so it may artificially created the sense of intimacy that I don't know has continued, and like we've since as we've been talking through the rest of this, it's like look. We either like each other or we had, too many scrambled signals at the top that were just like. This is someone. I love and depend on. Like that's amazing, though that it's continued on, that's very cool. Yeah, so so far it's good at it feels so basically. I think the thing that we've kind of loosely saying like you know. Like If, if after this is over, it turns out. We don't like each other. No hard feelings right fray, right. For now nobody's fault for now it feels like we really like each other, but who fuck knows I'd be a trauma bond. You never know exactly exactly. Yeah, I mean it is definitively is. Yeah. So. That was really interesting. But so who knows who knows? But. Yeah, that was that was interesting. So you're saying instead of watching. DOCU series of fall in love is. Is Your recommendation to the really great answer that okay okay underrated. Tell Yourself. You're falling in love right right? Don't have any reference to know whether you're not fall madly in love with the first person who shows you any kindness. Kamran from Ferris Buehler's Day off. It's sort of a modification of Jim Carey from eternal sunshine when he says. Oh right, right woman! He kind of attention. then. So, that's yeah, so that. I guess that is my Docu series on some. Maximum Andrew for a title to yeah, Maximum Andrew is the title of your Docu series and I mean like like these docu series. You know there's the Heisenberg principle of like you know you can't help, but. Adjust to you are and like the maximum Andrew that you're bringing. Based on like the fact that you're in front of the camera I know and then in the last episode there's like a moment in an interview with you where you say the title of the show and everyone's like. Become the maximum. I, mean ideally I die of covert in the last episode. Anything and We'll be there also needs to be like a mystery subtext where it's unclear if you killed your ex wife. In the past. Yeah, so Lada Lot of dead bodies. Of Dead bodies of scout literal skeletons in that clauses. Let's take a quick break and when we come back, we're talking goofy movie. And we're back and. Let's I guess we surprised started off with just what are relative like what we're coming in with. Andrew you and I were talking a little bit before we started recording that I think we were both a little bit too old for this movie to have like I I think I was fifteen or fourteen when it came out. Yeah I'm so I I was at the exact age that I would specifically avoid a kids movie. Yeah, even though it was about my life. That's. Yeah the same same for me. I was like. This like I know I know it's been like a cult classic for probably a couple years now, but you had never never thought to. Really like crack it open and yeah, it's definitely was. A kids movie my perspective. But read and it has that classic thing I think of like who am I supposed to relate to what I watched this now, but we'll. We'll get into that. We'll get bro. Miles and Jamie. You guys had seen it before. No Oh really. I'm seen it I'm kind of in the same boat where it's different I'm a little bit younger than you, Jack, but like at the time I was eleven, but was like this shittiest kind of eleven year old. Who was like? Pulp Fiction was out that year and I'm like I'm watching that dude. That's fair. I was sort of like five. Because I think also growing up in La, you have the added layer of like being really close to movies, so it's like not do like like my. My Palate is beyond Disney. Shit anymore so. I like a lot for a lot of those reasons. I like rejected a lot of things that were made for probably people my age at the time, so yeah. Eleven year olds is what you're saying I. You know I did I was looking trippy dude. Parents were neglecting me by letting me watch that Jin Foot I. Think Yeah I just at the time. I wasn't interested, but I always knew other people liked it. And when Danny came on, Danny Fernandez came on like a few years ago, like a one of her first appearances, really talking about how like big this as a film it was to her, I was kind of like Okay now I'll watch like like you say Andrew like yeah, it's it's a kids movie, but I can see what. Kids would feel back then in ninety five or whenever you watched it, but. Sure, it's got its I've been watching nothing, but kids movies so by the way I will never forgive incur for making the first movie of our movie club. A G. rated movie. Since that's all I've been able to watch this whole fucking core remember though the last episode you're like Oh great I can watch it with my kids. Cut Today and you're like man fuck. You assholes. Jamie you had seen it before I'd seen it before I was a baby when it came outside and see it theaters, but I saw it later sorry. I was two years old when this movie came on. But. but I've seen it a bunch of times I think. I've seen an extremely goofy movie more, and that's the one where Max goes to college and goofy comes with him because every time, I like. Start like when I watched arrested development season four. You're just like Oh, they're just doing an extremely goofy movie. What a weird choice! When like? Michael Goes to college with George Michael That's literally the plot of an extremely goofy movie, but whatever? Not calling anyone else, but but it seems like you know. Maybe they just plagiarized an extremely goofy movie. But yeah, no, this is a this is a good it does follow with my theory that all movies are about fathers and sons, and and so this movie wasn't necessarily but I, but it's I like it. A Lot I have a lot of thoughts about it. Definitely from an era when all movies are about fathers and sons 'cause they were all written by like teams of all dudes included gas movie, which was written by three men, one of whose name was Jim Spelled J. y. m.. That so shout out to him. And we're also going to be bringing in to. On this movie, one of our experts, one of our goofy movie experts on our network super producer on a hosea. Yeah I'm here with Goofy, actually. She is with Goofy goofy is my absolute favorite character in the Disney verse as you can see, it still has its tags on it from when I bought it at Disneyland at seven years old so and W T, yeah, and he's in. He's in premo condition I've had him my whole life and I. Don't let anyone touch him. Well. goofy movie is the movie that defined my childhood I had issues with my father. I also felt like I was never cool enough and was trying too hard to You know attract people into my friend. Groups I also think it's probably one of the most layered intricate like dark dramatic films wall like surrounded by the idea that it's a disney film, but touching on so many different levels of emotions and anger, relationships and feelings, and like what it is to. Be a single father with this son that you don't understand and there's no mother figure, which is deeply unexplained as to how I didn't even came about I did some very the research. The deeper you dig, though it gets so fucked up, it's yeah, yeah. Max's mother is presumably a human woman that were. Chats what my research revealed. Well, it's tough because we never see your face, but it seems like that, was it. We never saw her. Body? But, she has a human body, but so do a lot of the animals. In these movies, and she like San is basically a human with a dog knows. That drives me at like up a wall about like this era of animation like it's not bad in a goofy movie, but there's so like. For anytime there's only men on an animated project. The like female characters basically just look like women, and the the male characters can look like cartoons, but like Roxanne looks like a like a fourteen year old girl with the dog knows like she doesn't look like. There's no dog features by design because she's like supposed to make boys horny right. Yeah, Oh, all the five L. Care, porn little yeah. I mean a lot of these. I sometimes forget goofy is supposed to be a dog, but he looks like a cartoon. You know the girls. Cartoon looks like Shit. Musical number ten was and. One of the characters had the wild cleavage I was like what does yeah yeah. Natural Dog titties. Those there is this movie? Let's just go from the time. Said big natto unprepared for this G. rated movie to open with a wet dream. Into like a psychedelic body hord nightmare, but the movie just throughout is extremely. Horny like his main motivation is Horny nece. There's like a part where like the Valedictorian gives a speech class. President gives a speech. Class and people are like. Yeah, give it to me like. Scroll through. School y'all. It is high school. I'm not your. List. This. I was. An prematurely vary Yeah. I do, too. What a! Notes I wrote down. Was that like ninety percent of the female characters I like basically just fly girls like their exact right dress like unbelievable, yeah? I mean that's what this is really a true snapshot of a period of time, because you also get one of one of the characters who I was like way, they're really ripping off Paulie shore, but it is Polish. He's introduced. He's introduced drinking from a water fountain with a Straw which like cool? And, he says major slurping edge. I was like Oh my God. There's so they're I. Guess I was like reading the so I don't know if this is beautiful or just weird, but the the director of a goofy. Into being the director of a Goofy goofy that. Twitter handle is at goofy movie Dir. Mostly what he could be tweeting. Kevin Lima mostly what you can, he can be found tweeting behind the scenes. Facts about a goofy movie. This Day yeah like last week 'cause I guess that Disney, the Disney plus twitter account was like we're doing alive watch of a goofy movie. And then the director was just like. Here's what fucking happened just. He's so they don't want you to know. He should be, but he's like he's. Too Proud. But I guess Polish because Paulie. Shaw is not credited at the end of the movie and I was like wait. That was probably sure though right and I guess Paulie short really wanted the part, but then asked to not be credited, which is like I don't understand of. The game. Yeah, he didn't need to people you. You just know it. And! He also never saw a goofy movie, even though he was a major part of it. That was something that his. Intern revealed that he never saw. Kevin Lima also one of my other favorite Disney movies enchanted. Directed and just amazing that he's. One hundred two Dalmatians, that's amazing that goofy movie hold such. Sway over his. His career that he's goofy movie dirt not. Directed. TARS! Can Rule. You're not hearing me when I tell you. goofy movie is Canon. Won't. I love this strengthen polly shores Brando back then back to your point about cat, encapsulating nineties culture, because they basically co opted like what was, he called Weasel. fucking, Encino, man or weasel that whole character encino man. There's just like get that and put that in this movie. Here's bigger. The juice. You know he's like. Stop whizzing because he was drinking the slushy Zeno me. Excuse me Sir! Encino man. Is that Paulie shore? Yeah, exactly okay. It feels like in the nineties, film film, course or screen writing courses were like okay. You need a regular guy, a chubby friend and a Paulie shore, and then put them in. That's what that's a movie works, and you'll make a million dollars minimum. There's also the scores so good to the Carter Burwell's score in this movie rules. I didn't remember any of the songs in this, the all the songs are. The songs didn't hit for me as hard as they used to. Because it's like this could be in any movie really. Yeah Carlsberg was great music. That's what's interesting to me. That caught my attention about the film was just like to your point there you can look at this foam so many ways and there are a lot of things that even resonate in me as like one of the few like black kids in my school, where I was constantly thought of as like being called a gang member, or whatever like just picking on. On like my haircut, or whatever from the deans and Shit, so like his whole arc. Even there was a moment I just remember in seventh grade. When the westside connection album came out, I was throwing up side in a class photo and my teacher stop the whole fucking class to like. pull up the class photo, guys. We had a really nice class photo, but some gang people wanNA bring gang signs indoor photos. Tore the fuck photo up in front of us, and like threw it on my desk and like trauma, and there are white kids. They're awake. His throwing that shit up to but I. Just remember I was like you know what and when I saw when Max did his thing doom, his power line shit, and the fucking principle just went off and just told his dad. Oh, you know. He's going to be a fucking gang member in the. House. Also though the mayor reason I bring this up, though is because there. There's themes of I think just that experience and I think that's that can be interpreted any number of ways I think based on your individual experience, but power line being played by Tevin Campbell was also one of the most mind blowing things for me and I was like I. Love! Bobby Brown. Yeah! I was supposed to be Bobby Brown, but because of his drug. He Thank you is I. I got more like Michael Jackson Mc. Hammer Bobby Brown vibes from than Kevin Campbell. He's based off Michael, Jackson and prince but Tevin. Campbell played him right. I think there's even allusion to Michael. Jackson and like that car seen right, isn't it? Like a glove out of hand goes up but Tevin Campbell man. He was one of my favorite people back ed assigned Kevin Kevin Campbell cassette tape. Nine. Can I also say that. Power lines outfit is based off Devaux there early Yellow Jones. Yeah also. He has an impossible body type power line. What. What's going on, but it's still like hard got unrealistic. Those those fucking like solid Oakley's at various characters. Where are dope is how they're very yeah, they really are they need. I need now. I question are those goofy gloves genetic? It felt like. That's a weird thing because that comes from like minstrel shows right. Yeah, and that's where like Mickey. Mouse got his from. Is that like making mouse was had a lot of design elements that were taken from minstrelsy and then. A lot of the early Disney characters, also had that same thing. It's just it's so weird, yeah! One point that he like has begi ninety s close like He. He dressed exactly like dress. Than Age. and. The white gloves well, it's. The seed where he accidentally touches touches Roxanne's hands and I realized she didn't have gloves on. Because at first I was like okay. It's just part of the dog body. And then I was like okay I guess it's part of the goofy family body, these kind of fucked me up when their when they took their shoes and socks off. I? His feet his. Life horrible. I thought about that a lot less. I really I like positive for a second. It'd be like what. Is What are we doing right now? There's a few like world building like this that I I was just like. Goofy knows that Walt Disney exists. He likes checks they both who Disney is, but who is Walt Disney in relation to them in this. Or is he his boss? Keychain us. Right, dislike, I don't know I don't get it, but they live. Jim Is that yeah he's. He's like they're Hubbard. That's or is he? There's see new. Yeah, maybe he's. He knew the other thing. This is a play. This is a world where goofy and his son live in Ohio. Because that's where it says they start on the map and that Walt Disney. Exist this is where they live I looked. Massachusetts. I it. Starts in the middle, but also like he has like a Disney or a mickey mouse phone in the beginning like imagining you had a photo. That was a sculpture of your dad's friend. I don't have to imagine. Chinese! So you're like is Mickey not rich in this movie? Because he's hitchhiking Mickey Mouse is also at the power line concert. He's in the crowd like God that was. I told to get to the concert, so he's not even a celebrity. He just like gives out. Phones that are shaped like him to his friend. Walt Disney is like his. It's weird. There's also like some weird like punching down with like other amusement parks like Bafta like create a Straw man amusement park. That's like a based on Shittier, Roden. I couldn't tell. Them selves like Old Timey Disneyland or if they were just shitting on a very specific place that we don't know about. Did anyone okay I felt. Some type of way in after okay I have to go back to the power line performance. When he snuck snuck one on the entire school first thing I call out I love this suspension of disbelief. This motherfucker pretended he was power line the whole show and it wasn't till his glasses came off that they're like. Oh Shit. That goes trope and did. was like so disguised wearing a dress address. Yeah, I feel like that concerts, a perfect metaphor for drugs and alcohol because it's like the thing that he does like makes everyone be like all right. I guess he's cool, which is like in high school? Like the thing you do like? What was his fucking plan? Plan was just like. Jeff is stunned. To fuck that girl as power Lloyd it felt like it. Wasn't that? Right 'cause like if the plan went fully off, he would have been power line and she would have been like. Oh my God powerline, he would like yeah. Bus! Like what was the? Hey, maybe there's. That's what I mean. That's this level I enjoyed having to suspend my disbelief to yeah, yeah, which was kind of fun about it, but when he got in trouble that sort of fucking rant, that principle goes on when he's saying that he's like a gang member who will cause riots and steal things I yeah references. Ninety two riots because this came out in ninety five, which probably meant descriptors written in ninety, three, maybe even nine. Based on the time for some like who the fuck like what I was like fuck. Is that part especially like that was real. That's real man like like just wearing cross colors close and Carl. Can I in Ohio at that time? People like I remember my Spanish teacher like I got an even better grades in seventh grade, but my Spanish teacher is like you're turning into a punk kid. You're like you're going down the wrong path like people really couldn't handle like any influence of hip hop in your life, they would flip out. Yeah, you're like fuck you teach. Give me back my visor in. Idaho. Brian out. That's right. Let's take a quick break and we'll come back with more goofy movie analysis because we haven't even gotten to bigfoot yet. Hi, I'm esther. Dean and I'm excited to welcome you to a brand new season of song, land and Sung lands podcast. We have an amazing roster talent. This season I promise you, you don't WanNa, miss one single episode. Don't Miss Someone Monday nights at ten nine central on NBC and join us. Gear also meant podcasts available every week after show on the IHEART APT or wherever you get your podcast. Andrew Back? I've I've another fun fact at Goofy Movie Dir. Let's here, so there is a I. Guess it okay. He says in an early version of the story Max had an opponent for Roxanne's affection. A dog named Chad. And we yeah and I guess in the original draft of the movie. He was voiced by Joey Lawrence which would have been perfect, one, thousand, nine, hundred five shit, but yeah, there was he was Max was literally going to be up against a Chad. I felt like maxes. Character and relationship to Roxanne felt a little in selfish. Yeah, because he. Has. No redeeming qualities other than that. He's very nervous around her, and like doesn't know how to like talk. He gets really tongue tied, and that makes her want to date him, which seems very like in line with in cells, expect patience for like women just loving them because because. Yeah if they want them to. If we if we were doing a Bechtel cast on this that come up. What. Anything about Roxanne outside of she has a dad, and she like ends up liking Max for question. Mark Reason. Because he her household gave off. Very I know I know. Yeah, the Chad opponent was interesting and I also just was reading through the IMDB Trivia that PJ was actually going to be a frog called pepe. Think I. Mean there won't be goofy movie. Dodged a bullet with that one. I'm going to follow. Her, let's see if we get a follow back. To a point that. I think when you guys raised earlier. goofy is such a Klutz yet. He drives like a criminally negligent drunk person and kills two highway workers. Like is just constantly accidentally killing people which which led me to believe. That's what happened to his wife. Like killing people and just. Moving on neighboring it over I like the Gouveia kind of like mean, first of all the fact that there's like world is like okay. This is where we're going to tackle single fatherhood. You're like all right. Let's see what. I ask cool, but it's it's. He's Goofy is like an okay dad. He's doing all right and at the end he's. Except that I'm only doing kind of hate him at first. Yeah, I feel like his journey is similar, or our journey is similar to maxes in that first. You're just like men. Fuck this guy. Leave me alone. Let Max do what he wants. And then by the end you're kind of endeared by Just what a Complete Cup of a dead! He is looked at it and like such angry kid that the second that scene where he was like we're going on. On a fishing trip, Bro I had so much anxiety because it's like. Oh, yeah, he's about to fucking. Go Watch the fucking party with Roxanne. You Dick, let them fucking have it's not about you. Getty that I was so pissed off about it I it didn't matter like the actual plot. Points of the script that were supposed to be part of the redemption Ark completely wet past me, because I was still hanging onto my anger from him, denying going to the party. So I. I kinda felt on. This guy felt closer to like I love. Max But I was like. Max, you fucking ungrateful Little Kid. Your father brings you on vacation for two weeks. He brings you to baseball games. He brings me to a museum parks and that's not fucking enough for you. There's a lot of dogs that don't get those opportunities mags. You should enjoy your vacation we skip. That a great vacation. Harvard or whatever the fuck you wanted the whole vacation. This is a good vacation there in Miami I. What. Department there, paragliding and Miami someone's. But isn't yeah. How much money do they have lake? It's also like 'cause. Nominally. He's doing it as sort of a punishment. You know he's like trying to get mce like just be like you're in fucking trouble. We're going on this fishing trip. No fuck you. Know back, but then in the middle. He's like Mazda. I mean given the information that we are that goofy is a single father who works at like a JC Penney like photo studio. They could not afford that vacation and is in a lot of data Mexican go to. How do they pay for college? In an extremely goofy movie I wonder if it's explained because it seems like yeah, I mean. That's why I asked him. Give it to show business unfortunately. Well, fortunately for Goofy the the department store photography businesses about to explode. Probably GonNA. Do Do really well. Can I give you some info? Apparently, he works at Kmart. So that's a weird thing. Canonical Kmart Yeah, works progress Geezer behind the his lack of upward mobility. Now and yet he's just a studio photographer, which he works under Pete Who's PJ's. And PJ stands for. Okay so yeah, also I don't understand how like Pete is a one percenter with his like home out of his travel grayer. Oh. You haven't seen his credit card debt. What say what is? Stu He wrote. He owns that studio something. Manager. Yeah How much money were those I mean those places were probably making fucking bank in ninety five, but not like not like camper like one percenter camper bank. That was like a Betsy Devos, RV. Yeah, yeah, so many Michigan references, the crazies and Betsy Devos so. There was one moment where I think it's Pete calls him, Mister Goof or seven calls him Mr named fucking Goofy Goof. Yes, it is yes God. Goofy. This is my son Max, goof. But also our writer M. row how his wife died. Did you see that? No, yes, so there. So this was written into the into like the pages of one of the scripts for goof troop, but was never like included as a line of dialogue. It was just like here's some background on the character. His Max Goose Mom died when she was at the Grand Canyon with goofy and he was like Hon. I'm GonNa. Take a picture of you. Okay back up a little bit back up a little bit more, and then the last thing he ever heard was her scream as she fell into the Grand Canyon. God One? ADDS a whole new level just like darkness to right. I mean I liked. For. That they just go through the full cartoon tragedy. It's only. It's them aside. It feels a little bit like if she's human, it does feel a little bit like. Goofy is too dumb to realize that she operates on different physics than him as a cartoon and just riot killed her, because that would have been fired for a cartoon now who? Do you think though that goofy has any trauma that he carries with him or he. He deals in very specific spectrum of emotions where that's why he can just laugh off like. Love. My love fell to her death. Seems to like reference some like daddy issues that he also implied that goofy is father has died because the job in the car on the bigfoot night. He's like yeah used to do this shit with my dad mental lot, and then you're like what happened to your dad. What if it was the same thing to happen to a car? This is his curse. Everyone he loved falls off a cliff. So the bigfoot segment. Comes at the midpoint of the movie, which like the mid point is supposed to be a like the point at which like the stakes get heightened and the game changes into something was little more heightened. My reading is that they died. bigfoot kills them. Were they were? Like the Giver Dies and everything that happens from this point forward, and his death is just his death hallucination. Because it totally loses. It's tethered or reality becomes like total dream logic like their fishing bigfoot arrives, and then overall. The rhythm becomes huge. Intractable problem happens, and then just dissolves into the next seen like bigfoot is going to kill them. It's like Kujo can't get out of the car, and then they just like dissolved to them eating at a roadside diner. Where like it looks like those nuns that they see on the highway are also like. Following them the whole meal. The and that's never really addressed to. Those nuns are behind the diner. There in the background of every scene. Jack saying. Is there emissaries from God to usher them into the? Just ushering them on into the the afterlife I guess yeah, just create a Pavlovian responsive seeing them in moments that are like uplifting or give you hope like if it's a musical number. They escaped bigfoot thing so now we see them as a comfort. Yeah, interesting My guessing is that they died when Pete drove over them in his RV, because that's. Right before the big foot hallucination, and then it comes like their whole journey in their car on a river like their car is in a river in the Grand Canyon something that clearly would have killed them again for the fifth time, and then dissolved to. They're just like in the band instrument cases like there's no explanation. Well, I, guess we gotta get you up there man and then boom there's. Power lied concert was amazingly smooth. Very surely surely there'll be some something that happens here some kind of conflict. There just eh no! Straight on stage as they sneak into the concert yet, another timeless death of A wage worker, just doing their job. The security guard at the venue. Who is finds Max trespassing at a concert. Could possibly injure himself at this at this venue chasing him through the rafters, eventually he, he smashes into a jumbotron screen. Presumably dies and again we move into a dance number. Yeah it also. Number is pretty tight. It's amazing when he crashes into the jumbotron. People in the audience just cheer. No one does like remotely like No. This is dope there like this as yeah I mean again a maybe a metaphor, our times where yeah. Ironically these people were cheering on the deaths of our peers for entertainment or something you know. I did I did feel I thought there was gonna be some discussion with somebody that related back to a theme like in terms of talking of power line or talking to the security guard. Like Hey, right, this is yeah. This is for my kid I always wanted or like I'm in love and I gotTa do this or that. There's GonNa be something. And it just wasn't there also the more I was thinking about it. I was like what are the economics of broadcasting? You're touring show. On TV, yeah! I mean it must have been a finale must have been on the run tour. Yeah, yeah, pay per view. This probably would have been like peak pay per view. Shit, too, which is why they were only. One Kid's house is like Sh. It had ten dollars. One kid either had a parent who had the black box or one kid you knew was rich, because their parents bought pay per view I mean she was the class president. They watched the class presidents. Who clearly you, so she probably had had cash I loved the class President I loved the class president, and I loved the the weird weird girl as a sidekick to hot girl as a fourteen year old visibility. Class President girl with braces like okay there I feel good with the blossom hat, yeah! Blossom. Yes, she was, she was when Goofy Hashtag me, toos the background singer by going into her dressing room when she was undressing, and then it's just like ooh. Does, his like whole attract. I'm attracted to you thing. That was really inappropriate. He shouldn't have stayed in there was same he stayed. I thought he left. No, you will never see him leave. But then all of a sudden, he's on stage, but I don't know I didn't feel good about that. And like how goofy was in their show is at her while she was getting dressed and at at goofy movie Dir. confirmed that that backup singer is the same woman that you see in a car earlier in the movie with a tiny dog in front so kinetically same woman so goofy has been kind of arguably stocking. canceled. I think we solved goofy movie. I just have one. I have one last question. Do you know with all the things you're saying? And you said you've seen goofy show characteristics that you don't really find all that pleasant We've all had our criticisms. Do you think goofy should have even had custody of mathematics? Just given everything we've thought of like the mother falling to her death. The all the other things around this You know I'm just curious how you feel about that. I think goofy lives in a world with white male privilege, no away Do ever he wants, he can have children He can murder people. Live coast through no big deal. Everyone just like I don't know man promote him. Put Him on stage. Let them live a life. It's a very interesting world where when I was like. Oh well, he's a man, so he can do whatever you want honestly. I just remembered one dark thing from that quote. Unquote wooden would an animatronic of a possum show a band. Yeah, there was a lyric that were one of the possums said. Don't you WANNA? Be Hanging from a tree. La Alabama and I was like what the fuck is this shit? I mean I get that the way they were like posed is them with their tails wrapped around a branch like hanging, but just right because I, I I kept the subtitles on just to kind of absorb as much of like everything is going. And when I saw, it was like okay, southern Possum, chucky cheese with the lynching themes. Oh Shit I. Mean when you look at the fact that Mickey. Mouse background is so tied into minstrel shows like that's. Pretty darn well. They went to that I. Did write down a note? Is this turning into deliverance because it felt like? That was where yeah there were some yeah like the the toothless was supposed to be coded for also an adult I. was like what they're going in with this whole booking situation at the possum. I wish that they would like to build out these like these kind of complicated cannons for like daisy I would love like a daisy duck movie where she's a shady mom, as she's got a daughter and she's and like that would be. That would be fun I like the goofy got this like deep very nineties like socio economically complicated cannon. Shit I do think this is. The most nineties movie I've ever seen both with what Anna was talking about with the like. White, mail, like just just not even thinking about any of the consequences of his action, and then just like the stakes of him like wanting to impress a girl by lying. That is dead knows like Michael Jackson. Such a nineties TV plot. That's just like that, said yeah, that would be impressive to like people who work in the film industry, but like nobody like I dunno like people don't care that. Your Dad was in a band with Michael Jackson like kids in high school are like Whoa. You must be cool. That's like fuck you. That's another like no I. mean every life teen movie of the nineties features the like male romantic lead lying to the object of his affections, saying I'm sorry kind of at the end, maybe and then being immediately forgiven, and then she's his wife. Yeah. He's so bad a communicating. It's unbelievable. I actually everyone everyone in the family is like cannot communicate. It's hard to watch right. I mean and when you realize that. Gadhafi's inability to communicate to his wife clearly. Ended her life. This is not this is not a good A. Precedent. Also, did anybody else like for a very for a split second when goofy explodes at the end and it's just as boot standing there thinking that it was like he had blown up and it was just like. He's like everything from his shins up had been integrated. That was like. A point like wow, what a fucked up summer for this kid! Static one fuck. It's like it's like June. Eighteenth and your dad has been reduced to shins and shoes. Right right. How different would an extremely goofy movie be? If goofy had exploded at the end of the first movie? I shouldn't say there's a lot of instances where we're not sure if if these can actually die because he drive so. The car can mold and fit under any sort of obstacle. But then at the same time, they're worried about them falling off A. Waterfall and it's like you. Don't. Kill. Disney movie! The mother can always die. Out. Find a way to kill, but yeah there. I didn't even think of that. A Barrow is pretty low. Yeah, you're. This movie made me realize that. We're we're floating on something about to go over. A waterfall was like the quicksand of nineties movies. Every nineties movie had that like. I feel like I saw so many shitty comedies were that was like the end was the movie where where those like a hot air balloon Yeah, that people loved that Motif in the nine two. He just pivot this movie club to only films that have that water smart. Just to maybe see if there's something thematically, we're seeing no run if you have. A wait, we're GONNA. Go off the water off by the same guy. Named the series do go chasing waterfalls and. RIGHT YEAH! I just loved it. This movie has a Carter Burwell's score. Let's so fucking weird like Carter. Burwell has scored every Coen. Brothers movie ever. He like doesn't usually do kids movies. He did like. Lisa. He did like. This, is just he. Did you said he didn't do? Not a as a cartoon movie. Have you that to your kids watch? I just turn it on and left the room. Stick around. But it's like I well. He did Wayne's world two, but like he doesn't do a lot of. Fun Movies and he did so good I mean he did famous Joe's apartment from nine, hundred, ninety, six with the fucking roaches that had. They were running the apartment. I gotta get. This has been A.

It just never happened with my work schedule. I got to that never. Where would you wanna go? Why would I want to go for fun in the sun? Listen to stressed you sound the idea of actually being on vacation with you. They say it would it would be a slight -cation because we do everything on a sleigh. We dash the snow, and I don't know like check our phones and argue -cational you'd hang up on me. And I'd start the show, but. Bounce? Gimblett media. I'm Jonathan Goldstein. And this is heavyweight today's episode Joey. As a young man whenever conflict arose. My go-to move was to roll up into a fetal ball and pray to go unnoticed. Of course. This only made matters worse case in point one afternoon while riding a trolley I fell into a daydream and missed my stop anyone else in my position might of yelled. I missed my stop or open the door, please. But in a magic all these trolley writing strangers turning around to stare at me my mind went blank. So I decided it might be simpler, draw less attention. If I just jumped off. As landed onto the street. I heard a high pitch scream that I would later realize was coming from me instead of drying, less attention. I was now center stage the trolley conductor skidded to a halt and all the passengers ran to the windows to watch as painfully crawled into a nearby Bush once in the Bush I hid waiting for the trolley to leave. For young Jonathan Goldstein, the cost of staying silent that day was to twisted ankles and the loss of my pride, Joey, hey, they're awesome to hear from you. This is young Joey, and he recently had a bad day that forced him to realize his fear of being seen his fear of speaking of was exacting a far greater cost than a mere double ankle injury. It was ruining his life. And so he's reached out for help from me and just never get myself in a situation. Like this again, Joe is twenty two years old and the lead up to his terrible horrible. No good, very bad day begins right after his art school graduation when he moved into an artist's loft in downtown LA live in that downtown city life kind of living communal living style. The downside was that the loft had bedsheets for walls and six. Roommates. But the plus side the loft had bedsheets for walls and six roommates six super cool roommates, a DJ adul- maker a photographer a guy who quote trimmed we'd and super coolest of all up podcast or I pictured these cool artists types having great parties and a lot of people over and all the artists in the LA scene would come through, and I was going to come in and hopefully fit in immediately, but Joey didn't fit in immediately. He never felt comfortable just hanging out with everyone never knew what to say. And so he ended up spending most of his time alone in his room rehearsing icebreakers. I like your tattoo he'd repeat to himself your tattoo. I like it sweet tat he'd say pointing limply at the mirror like a socially crippled. Travis bickel. Enable to come up with anything that felt right paralysis set in Joey began spending all day in his room, a shadow behind a bed sheet. They'd all be in the living room right next to my room hanging out watching a movie drinking hanging doing their thing. And I would be in my room just like making people uncomfortable with by you know, being out there Joey had been living in the loft several weeks when he realized just how isolated he become one day while waiting outside the bathroom. He ran into one of his new roommates. She choose like, oh, hi, what's your name? Oh, where do you live? I was like here live here. Eventually Joey began avoiding the loft altogether. Spend every day wandering the streets. Only returning in the evening when I was back in my house at night, I would sneak into my room and then make and then make it drink. Make sure I didn't drink too much water. So that my bladder was decide wouldn't have to leave my room to p my new goal was to just be as unobtrusive as a roommate as possible be invisible. So in this time, I would just try to spend all my day out of the house. On my rollerblades, which I had also recently taken up. Everyone needs a hobby and Joey found one that provided both good exercise as well. As a way to free himself from the oppressive yoke of human dignity. And so it was while rollerblading the Joey discovered his new home away from home the pizza parlor, the pizza parlor played cool music and had cool art on the walls. It even served cool pizza. There was one shaped like a marijuana leaf and other shape like circles. But because Joey was Joey even a simple thing like ordering pizza was a challenge. So he rehearsed his icebreakers, I found myself like making sure I could have something to say like preparing something for the quick interaction while I buy pizza like what kind of thing. I don't know if it's raining out. I would have something clever to say about that or. Give me an example of the clever thing that you would say when it was raining. I'd say oh, man bummer. And this is not rollerblading weather. Okay. Like, I would. I'm trying to say. Slowly, Joey began making social inroads, even managing to earn himself nickname that rollerblading guy his fantasies of fun and friendship with his bohemian, loft, buddies, we're over, but his fantasies a fun and friendship with his bohemian pizza parlor buddies had only just begun. I had planned on continuing to visit there and making these friendships grow, and hopefully progressing them to to realize friendships outside of the shop. And so every morning Joey would blade straight to the self service. Refrigerator that house the day old dollar slices. I pretty much exclusively eight pizza from that moment on for for all your meals pretty much. There was definitely days that went by when it was just feeds the how many slices a day were you for five two for breakfast. And then stick them in my backpack for the rest of the day. What were you what were you doing for fruits and vegetables? I occasionally got the veggie slice. And that was Joey's life eatings are rolling blades and waiting for old, man. Scurvy until one terrible horrible. No good. Very bad day. January fourteenth was like every other day. I woke up to go. Get get my pizza headed into the shop. And unfortunately, I only found pepperoni in. The fridge Joey is a vegetarian and so without having prepared anything clever to say like pepperoni pizza. Oh, man, bummer pepperonis aren't vegetarian instead said nothing and trying to just rollerblade back out the door without anyone noticing, but he'd only blade it a couple blocks when he saw a familiar face biking towards him. And it's one of the pizza chefs. So I just thought he was going to hell, I don't know. I thought he was going to say what's up, man? Let's hang out. What's your name will? You know, I thought he was interested in me. So I was excited to see him biking towards me. And I took off my headphones degree them. And the first thing you said is don't come back. Excuse me. He said you're taking slices. I said what? And then it clicked flipping through the dollar slices and then abruptly leaving and silence. Looked fishy. Like Joey was stealing pizza, and I I was panicking talking to him. Like, I could feel could hear the panic my waist and stuff. But I I didn't know what to say. So I kinda just I was kind of speechless than I didn't have the confidence to to keep fighting. Okay. Yeah. And then he. He bike away. Started crying on the streets. And I I must looked ridiculous rollerblading down the street while crying at that point. It was a terrible day, it became horrible as well as no good and very bad when Joey crying on the street received a phone, call bearing more bad news. The roommates had been kind of talking and. That they they use the words I'm getting under their skin. The roommates found Joey silence, sneaky ways unsettling. They wanted him out. I like when and got my stuff. And I don't know. I I basically moved out in that moment. I like just left without without seeing anybody. And I kind of ran away. As the day came to a close Joey called the one person. He always calls the person he's leaned on his whole life, a lease his twin sister scared me, the same advice that everyone did which is just, you know, go talk to them be normal. But I don't know. I mean, I never was able to take that advice from anybody coming from her though is especially. I felt especially bad. He was like almost in tears telling me, the story at least knows Joey better than anyone and he's relied on her socially his entire life. When he started dating at least introduced to her friends and when he was too anxious to attend family functions. Alise would go in his place. And he told me about how he cried. Which is always he doesn't cry that often you could tell the big deal that he expressed that he cried about it. And he told the whole story, I was laughing so hard. Is a really funny story. I want him to see that. It was funny too. And he can see the humor in it. But he was also pretty clearly devastated. When I ask Elise. What's funny about her brother crying on the phone? She makes a pretty strong case casually visceral him in the way, only a loving sister can him in his rollerblades and often funny looking tank tops, his creeper mustache, mullet definitely way. Just the look of him. I got a second. Here's a mullet. Foam. Full creepy young child mustache. And his shoulders and arms, look look strong. But they're small and same with his legs. It's his legs are shocking these skinny they do have an incredible shine to them. Admit does. He does he play ornaments. I'm not sure that's right, man. I'm guessing that's just his oily self. I don't want Joey to have to wait years and years like I did just to know the sweet joys of crippling abnormality. So I asked Joe he's oily self what he most wants at of all this. And the answer he delivers his pretty to the point almost like he's rehearsed. It I want to say sorry that that I wasn't able to leave my room. I I wish they knew how I felt basically. But when I put forward my action plan for Joey to fix his bad day by rewrote blading through it re- rollerblading back to the pizza parlor to clear his name, and re rollerblading to the loft to apologize for being such a creepy sneaky roommate I can hear the beads of sweat squeak out of Joe his hairline and saturate his mullet, right? Yeah. Definitely. Yeah. I've definitely been meaning to but the the prospect is pretty scary. I just mentioning it. I got this for sure. Joey still wants to be invisible. But decades of experience taught me that oftentimes the more invisible, you try to make yourself the more visible you become. So if I have my way, Joey will no longer have to hide in the metaphorical Bush like a young metaphorical Jonathan Goldstein. After the break helping Joey to stop spinning is wheels. This episode of heavyweight is brought to you by Samuel Adams beer, Jonathan. Yes. Hey, just editor again, Lynn media. You're a history buff Redmond. Yes.

This episode of heavyweight his brought to you by the all new Honda, insight, and what better way to celebrate than with a new evolved version of my favorite game man or not mad where we take two seemingly similar Haydn's and decide if one or both is MAC down. Yes, or hey, just editor at Gimblett media. You know, I'm not afraid to go ahead. I know you're not afraid of. Brownies versus blonde us. I'm not sure I know what a blonde is a blonde is exactly like a brownie only it's made with white John. See once you start getting into chocolate that is in Brown. I think you're you're getting into like fancy soaked territory you wash your hands with that candidate's, candy canes, the read part of Kansas. We're all the flavors his the white part is mostly just glue. So why don't they just sell the red that wouldn't be very festive? Well that saddle said blonde and half of candy canes are to like chocolate that isn't Brown hybrids can be sort of. With the sleek styling inside and out of the all new Honda insight.

Absolutely no met her mile fifty five city forty-nine highway fifty two combined 2019 EPA mpg rating for LX and e x trim use. For comparison purposes. Mileage will vary depending on conditions, driving, maintenance, and other factors. Okay. Hold the line for a moment. Joey. All right. Sounds good. Hang on. I'm practicing. My witty retort don't do that. Okay. During the ad break. Well, you were loading up on unbelievable deals. I was considering the full extent of Joey's dilemma as much as Jonathan debonair Goldstein wanted to help him the truth is Jonathan Stewart Goldstein is actually a lot like Joey. And so I made a phone call to an old friend a man, whose example and critical feedback some might say overly critical feedback have helped me to become the animals sociale abyss. I am today. Happy confident out of the shrubs and loving it. And I was hoping you could work the same. Magic on Joey Joey this is my friend Gregor Howdy. Hi. So Joey was living in this loft. And he Gregor is the exact opposite of Joey and me in any given social interaction. He's never afraid to stand out never afraid to say the wrong thing case in point was Jani king. When he said, you're wearing rollerblades. No, I am really later. But so you rollerblade into the store wearing your rollerblades. That's right. I have these very vivid memories of being in central park. And seeing these people mostly grown men on rollerblades with folded hands over the lower back bent forward, like zipping around like like Riskin suit, the big giant grin as they gas for breath, and like goggles on you got all that out of your system. I hate rollerbladers. And I hate everything about rollerblades. But I think most people don't have the cards to ask for help take some very big man to ask for help. Okay. So the guy wants to fine. Blade fine. Since Joey feels most comfortable when he's rehearsing social interactions. High suggest we do some role playing Joey plays himself and Greg replaced pizzas. Shopowner pizzas after ten minutes deliberating over his character's name Gregor decides on Carmine. Please call me karma. All right. Stop trying to have a little depth character. Do that. Once I finish offering some helpful direction. We begin. Okay. You're the owner. I'll do the Foley work. I'll make any necessary sounds, okay. Joey you're coming into the pizza parlor tingle tingle. Hey. So it's been a long time. I I don't know if you heard I. Had a bit of a. Joey trails off even in a simulation is nerves. Get the better of him. I try to inspire him with more Foley, work tingle tangle places starting to fill up a little. So you might wanna spit it out tingle tingle tingle tingle radio. Suddenly a monkey came in. Hot Gregor Carmine, the whole duration of this shoot. I need to be in character Daniel day Lewis. I will only be calling karma. Even have you be the shopowner? Why wasn't either shop owner? I could be your son who's got like bigger dreams. I don't wanna spend my whole life thing and pizza derailing. I got big dreams. I want to get into real estate commercial real estate laundromats. See I'm not like you, really. I wanna have a self storage unit. They're very profitable. Don't you see? Now are gelling as team right at the very end as you start to fade us down. You can't even hear what I'm saying more. Sure Gregor was taking none of the work seriously, but Joey was enjoying Gregor. And in his own way. Gregor was enjoying Joey it looked like Gregor was in. I noticed that you liked to sit very close to the gate Gregor, and I meet at the airport for the flight to see Joey in LA squatting on the floor staring fixedly at the gate Gregor share some insider tips on air travel because when they say extra time getting down the jetway you're allowed to run past those. You're allowed. Easily run out run that little girl and the purple. Anyway, stick with me. I'm sure you had a board is big bird. Let's bring this big bird down, brother. Though, he knows a member of the three eternity of aviation. Buster. Once we've boarded running down the jetway like a couple of giggling idiots Gregor regales me with stories the time Lou Reed threaten to put an ashtray through his head. No, he didn't big heavy glass. The time attacks driver told him. He had is like his dad brothers. It's terrible story. The time all dozen or so members of the Wu Tang clan. Squeezed onto his living room couch. He asked for my seat to try then come the aviation stories all the flights. He's been on where people have died. But then there was another flood on when someone died right next to me. And they were literally doing the thing on the like. Doctors on board. And I was like kind of a doctor. How are you kind of a doctor? Very good diagnostician Legrand twenty-five of my favorite runways. Gregor, and I rent a car and meet up with Joey at his favorite coffee shop from here. We plan to head to the pizza parlor get him unbanned, and then go to the loft. So Joey can apologize to his former roommates? Hi, how are you? As well. As being rollerblade footed, Joey's Justice trop, stick legged mustache lived and mullet headed as sister released cautioned. Did it take you awhile to decide like what you were going to wear Joey seems anxious. So I asked him Joey are you anxious, but before he can answer Gregor steps in taking from here. You don't wanna make nervous nervous? Why don't you go around each say member until we? With his idiots game. What Gregor's really doing is distracting? Joey protecting him in this case protecting him from me. Okay. I'll start the Rizza the. Genius genius. Okay. Stop number one. The pizza parlor. It is the place. What time they opened eleven on getting nervous? My stomach is jumping wait here. Joey have just in case. As Joey's mentor. I know he runs a pretty good chance of choking. So I prepared him some notes during my flight. Okay. Here you go read this. Guys are like family to me and accused me of. Breath. I tried slower. You guys were like family. Oh, my. Go ahead. You guys are like family to me. And when you accused me of thefts mishandled the situation, I became discombobulated. I should have defended myself told you, I'm no. Although we want to offer Joey hell, it's important that he do this on his own. No gregor. No Jonathan know Elise will be there with Q cards and emotional support. But ultimately Joey needs to enter the pizza shop and make his case solo. We're gonna let Joey shine. Yeah. I mean, I think like bring your shine box. Joey are you getting the reference to the box that would be a lot of references? Have you seen goodfellas? Do your peci for Joey just to loosen them up a little. Was one tough Irishman put his head device. Get to veget-, Jerry, peaches, I instruct Joey to order pizza and come Bucci for as roommates this way the pizza. Parlor crew will see he's not just a dollar slice guy. But someone capable of committing to an entire pie and vinegar and bio based beverage it'll show personal growth have fun yourself. Joey swings. Open the door and rollerblades inside. Remember, the rollerblading? This whole time. Joey has been wheels down wearing is blades. You might want to rewind a few minutes and religion with that image in your mind. And it's not just the rollerblades. Joey is also wearing a wire so standing outside Gregor, and I can eavesdrop on how things are going inside. The parlor you wanna hear? While Gregor paces back and forth on the sidewalk. I Cup an earphone. And listen as Joey rolls up to the counter. Hey, how's it going? Joey is greeted by pizza chef. Yeah. I I don't know. If you remember me I used to come here all the time. I I was kicked out of your shop a couple months back for stealing slices even like I was accused of stealing slices. No. I totally know why you thought it was because totally looks like I mean, I came in Gregor, and I watch nervously through the storefront window blowing. Joey isn't mounting a defense any isn't offering a counter narrative, instead he's exhibiting a level of mealy mouth ary not seen since young Jonathan Goldstein. Tried to explain to a trolley conductor. Why he was hiding in a Bush, and I was kind of hoping I could come back just because I I love but Gregor bicker over whether to walk inside and roll Joey out the door like a dessert trolley full of flaming horse manure we notice something. I know it's weird that's been so long, but I just like really bad, really Farris. Oh, really nice. Not only does she remember that day. But she also remembers Joey. Several times. No, I see I think that was kind of remembers Joey I came in. I'm vegetarian. I saw that. You guys only had pepperoni slices is not for me. And I just turned around totally looks like I just grabbed one in. Yeah. I just wanna make sure you guys. Okay. Cool. Yeah. If he was willing to come back to face his accuser, she says, he probably didn't steal the pizza and with that Joey orders pies and Khumbu Chaz with our faces pressed against the window Gregor. And I watched with amazement as Joey waits for his order. Well, engaging in some completely unscripted repartee cool song, he says totally. She says this band is so cool. He says he she says. We didn't prepare Joey for any of this. But here he was riffing and scatting away like some kind of improvisational. Jazz cat Carmine would have been proud. Thank you very much. And tingle tingle Joey emerges from the restaurant. Holding pizzas aloft like trophies. God, I'm shaking. You did a great job despite his fear of saying the wrong thing, Joey and managed to put himself out there. And stumble his way through that was great. You really like and you did it by yourself. We didn't have to go in or anything. Awesome. I really nervous that. I felt my leg. Completely shaking. I thought she was gonna look out. And just see my leg shaking like. One to ten how you feel. Did you wrestle the better? Because I know I still have to go to the loss. That's you know, the real relief hasn't come. But. After the break. Joey tries rolling up a much harder hill apologizing to people. He actually knows. Those people you live with they actually know the real joy, maybe they might join. But they they knew. I don't think they did. This episode of heavyweight is brought to you by the new Glenfiddich fire in Kane. Single malt, scotch whisky Gimblett media editor. Hey, justin. I have a tradition after each long week of podcasting. We sit down and a recording studio and have a celebrate Tori glass of whisky last Friday. We drank Glenfiddich, fire and Kane. Fire in Kane is described as both smokey and sweet like a very well toasted marshmallow, and I think of us is that I think of us being kinda smoky. Oh, okay. Sweet. And have you ever thought about how strange that is how close we are giving differently? We grew up. I was an outdoor kid. I was an indoor kid I was building campfires to keep warm. I was getting by on just chunks of ripped off the ground. That's what I wouldn't high was turning the thermostat all the way to the right? And I was eating apple Ruge that might Bubby made. But we're still friends here the fire, and I'm the Kane shears Chin-chin. When you want a whiskey that's both smokey and sweet you shouldn't have to choose Glenfiddich, fire and Kane is a unique marriage of flavors for all the likely pairs out there.

I wanted to be on the big screen. I wanted my name in lights. I wanted to have the systems to boss, my assistance assistance around. Also wanted an endless supply of lemon Gumy's. But alas, I am, but Amir podcast host stuck here with sound area picture to be seen. That's why I'm so happy for homecoming. Homecoming started out as Gimblett podcast this one. And now it's been adapted into a TV series kind of not like this one. It's star studded cast includes Julia Roberts. Bobby Canavan, Stephen James, and it's in full color watch homecoming out November second on Amazon prime video. Do you think it's a good sign that the roommates did not respond? No, no to be honest. I'm pretty nervous about that. Joey trying to contact is former loft mates via group taxed to let them know he becoming by to talk. But as we stand on the street in front of the building are come Buju bubbling and vegetarian pizzas. Congealing Joey checks and recheck says phone not a single one of his former roommates has responded any response is not a good sign. Maybe that's better than like responding by saying, I'm not interested, right? The loft is on the second floor behind the metal gate, and there's no doorbell. All right. Let's figure out how to get into this fortress. There's no drainpipe to shimmy, no fire escape banister to reverse Holly. Oh, we can do is wait for someone to come in or out bigger fills the time. With yet another aviation story. What I was going through the TSA the lady was like could you pull your pants up? A little bit. He just told me take my belt off. Now. My pants are falling down. You want me to which is really told. I can. I told that every time I go through the built with a pair of shorts. You are belt end short. I never heard of that. How you think I keep them? I think someone's coming, thankfully, we're interrupted. Yeah. How's it going? One of Joe is old roommates emerges. He's a hip young man who if not wearing a straw, pork pie hat and carrying gondola paddle. His certainly giving off that vibe of an in boatmen vibe, Joey foregoing all social four play dives right in. Yeah. I'm here because I I want to apologize. I don't know you. Oh, yeah. I just wanted. I felt really bad about how things here. So I brought some pizza friends here. Joey gestures over to his friends to balding middle aged men. Slumping behind him like bald scarecrows stuffed with muesli. All right. All right. This is really awkward into surprise. Right. Car. The boatmen isn't very receptive. But Joey persists as anyone else home. If you wanna like ask if they are. Okay. With me. Thank you so much. It's taken all of Joe is courage to return to the place where the coolest art kids in LA live, and he's still being denied entry as Joey stares in silence at the steel door. That's just clang shut and his moustachioed face. I struggled to come up with something positive to say. I think you handled yourself. Well, extremely nervous right now. I don't feel. How's this going? Upstairs. The gondola gay is saying to his roommate something along the lines of. Hey, remember that silent roller skating weirdo? We kicked out of our art loft. Well, he's downstairs with pizza and his two gay dads. But then. Zack is the unofficial head of the household. The guy who takes care of all the square nor me stuff like throwing out expired, cottage cheese and paying the rent on time. He's bearded and shaggy. He turns to Joey Joey stares down at his rollerblades and starts mumbling explanations. Yeah. I just thought I mean, I I don't I didn't think it was just like I just thought like I haven't heard this much mealy mouth thing since I guess an hour ago when Joey was at the pizza parlor sack. Looks at Joey skeptically his arms crossed nonetheless Joey soldiers on I just feel really bad about kind of how how I love things here. Yeah. I know that I wasn't the best roommate, and I I feel really bad and just kind of uncomfortable about like, just, you know, even just how you guys think about me. But I just wanted to apologize and make things. Right. There were things like that bug me. Here we go, whereas the pizza chef had been impressed with the mere fact Joey had returned Zach that wasn't enough. You had your headphones on a lot. And yet notice cancelling headphones just like in your world, he launches into a laundry list of grievances didn't clean the bathroom. Who's just like, dude? Joey ignored everybody never cleaned up after himself. Never even washed to dish rant or who's paying? Or why are you paying her up being the worst thing? Joey could imagine was happening. He was being seen and told that he'd always been seen. He put all his effort into trying to become invisible. And absolutely no effort into doing his share of the chores. That's why is roommates wanted him out. They've seen him visibly not cleaning the loft visibly not taking out the garbage trying to hide the not really hiding it. All. Vantage of and that's what I was like, whoa. If ordering a pizza had given Joey the Jimmy legs facing Zach was giving Joey the Joey leg a name. I've just joined for a condition in which one's entire body becomes one single Jimmy leg. That is Joey leg that won't stop Jimmy Yang is like liberty. You know? But while Joey is Jimmy ING he is in folding. He's not running away. But it was just the way that was done. Yeah. As act finishes speaking, Joey maintains, I contact and what's more as the L A breeze. Whips up the hindquarters of his mullet. He does not fall prey to his lifelong crutch silence. Without notes without witty rejoinders. He responds all this stuff like the paying rent on time and just. All that stems from this shyness that we are just feeling uncomfortable to like, I don't know be in the public space kind of just because I'm weird in shy. I can't blame it on anything myself. I mean, it was all on me. It's like my own thing. Zack looks at show as I wish I was able to like be friendly with you see them struggling and his face softens. I like having social anxiety having like issues where you're like, you feel something that's like strangling you in a position where you have to converse or whatever. Like, I understand that. I only wanted to just be friends with you guys. Shaded awkwardness is just a step along the way to vulnerability in being vulnerable. Allowing yourself to be seen is the only soil from which friendship can grow. I love your funky style. And what better fertilizer than a mutual love of the mullet. I've been contemplating a similar mullet is yours. Do I don't know if my hair would work as much as yours, you have different volume. So has that can Joey wax on about the beauty of Joey's ape drape another loft made appears in the stairway. Nice. Yeah. If that's okay. That's great. Thank you. Holy cow. This is a really big space. Good. Joey leads Gregor in I on a tour through the old audio cassettes dummy heads past the kickboxing bag vinyl collection and ends the tour in a truly MTV cribs kind of way mild at his old bedroom where the magic happened and by magic. I mean, we're Joey slept on the floor wrapped in unwashed blankets, this base to stay. Did you have mattress? Joey breaks out the pizza and Khumbu, and we all gathered by the hot plate for toast. You're supposed to actually look up look at each other's eyes. The communication. Saragan after to schedule after we choke back. Our Khumbu I suggest a symbolic gesture you want to you wanna wash all the glass. Ridiculous. I use soap and everything. Just as we're about to leave Gregor decides he'd like to use the bathroom, and whereas a couple of shrinking and sneaky violets, Joey and me Mike just slink off looking for it Gregor does not too much of an position if I was to leave a little urine in your toilet on the way out. By embracing the awkwardness of life acknowledging that we are creatures who require toilets Gregor somehow makes things less awkward at least for himself. Gregor has mastered. Something that Joey is still learning the art of saying here, I am even when peeing into a toilet while wearing a lapel microphone. You're welcome. Thank you. Thanks. After leaving the loft. There's only one thing left to redo. Joey phones up is twin sister lease. And this time he isn't crying. God it was so cool. Yeah. I think he genuinely forgave me. I did it all my lonesome. He needed to. Well, after I got the help, I did it myself. You know, I mean, but now I just feel like I can do it on my by myself. Really proud of you. It did takes off, you know, more than anyone. You're proud. This feels good. I'm not surprised that Lisa's proud. But I'm taking a back to see the Gregor. Looks proud to proud of himself, of course. But also of Joey so once Joey gets off the phone Gregor offers up some fatherly advice. I understand what it is to be young. It's tough. As until you're about forty five. Life is really difficult. And then from there on in. It's all just sitting in one of those soapbox derby cars rolling down the hill to your senescence eventual death, Gregory, you're depressing. The guy I'm coming to my hallmark inspirational line, it's tough fifteen to twenty five year period. It's very unpleasant really most of it. Could you repeat that homework line again? But. And with that Joey pulls off is unlikely feat yet, he gets in a genuine off the cuff Zinger. Gregor and I had brought this big bird down. Big group hug come on Tang Tang. There we go.

Ep 14: Weekly Mandarin Chinese Learning Update: Oct 28, 2018

"Welcome to the changing scripts podcast every Sunday. We'll have one of two types of episodes all of them revolving around learning and using Mandarin. Chinese one type of episode will be my updates on. What I'm learning? How I'm learning it different quirks within language and sometimes information about China itself since I am living in trying high China right now the second type of that zone where I'm interviewing people as it or either learning the language like I am or people who grew up with Mandarin Chinese and learned other languages the updates used to be on a YouTube channel. But have now migrated over into the podcast only. The interviews started on the YouTube channel as well. And they very quickly ended up on the podcasts. So everything's been kind of going back and forth. But I think I think this is where we need to be thin queenie to be in your ears. Really really do. Now having said that the podcast is also available to listen on its own YouTube channel check the show notes, and you can find the link to the YouTube channel there. It's just an audio form if you are studying Mandarin Chinese have study. Mandarin Chinese I'll whether it be a child, doesn't it don't you're currently studying. You're currently using the language. I would love to interview you. So please contact me. Also, I'm happy to announce that we now have an Amazon affiliate account. What does that mean to you? It means you can support the podcast without actually spending any extra money in the show notes or on my weekly account. So if you go to Steph Puccio S T E P H F, you see CIO dot we W E B L Y dot com. Go all the way to the bottom. You'll notice that there's an Amazon button click on that. And that will bring you to my own very personal podcasting affiliate account with Amazon. Here's how it works. You just click on that link. Shop normally pay get your items be happy, and I'll get a tiny percentage of whatever you ordered. You. Do not pay anything extra. You also don't get a discount, but you'll get to support the podcast without doing anything. Super specially different. I greatly. Appreciate your support. I have one. Fancy new microphone, but I could use the second for my guests, and my computer is very quickly dying. And there's a lot of podcast and conferences to be honest with you I'd love to be able to go to. But since this is a passion project kind of needs some help with that. So that's what we're doing. I'm setting up some affiliate accounts and hopefully get some sponsors soon. And hopefully, we can make the podcast even better with each passing season. There's a few ways that you can feedback about what you hear in these two types of episodes in any given episode actually if you go back to that we blew website that I mentioned earlier stuff, Chiro dot we bleed dot com. Go to the contact page, and you will see a bright orange button. That's where you can send me a voice message. Thanks to speak five. I love this service. You can leave me a voice message for free, and I can even reply invoice. Message for him back to you. Let me know what you like we don't like questions you have about the episode's life in general in China learning Mandarin Chinese anything that you're curious about related to. We're talking about on this podcast. Thank you very much for the supporting the podcast in any which way you can. And I look forward to your feedback. And again, if you know, anybody learning Mandarin Chinese or interested in Chinese culture, especially modern Chinese culture, please do pass on the podcast. These kinds of podcasts are passion projects. They're created from a place of deep interest, and they need to find other people that have those interests in the best way to do that is word of mouth. So you can go fill out an apple podcast review. If you really want to. But honestly, I'd much rather you tell a few of your friends about this podcast, especially if you know, they share this similar interest. Thank you so much, and let's dive into the episode. Welcome back to changing scripts, and this is my worst nightmare. It is underway. Twenty-seventh? Why is it my worst nightmare because it is about to hit November and November is one month before December. Which is when my h K test is so I am on overdrive trying to figure out how to be the most efficient language. They're new that I can. But that's only one part of what? I'm going to share in this episode. So let me give you a quick rundown of what you're going to be listening to. So we've got some language learning news. So I wanna give a quick shout out to the folks the polyglot conference on October twenty sixth through twenty eight it will probably be too late. Once you get this episode to follow them live. But it looks like they're pudding a strong social media and online presence about what happens at the conference, and you can go into the show notes and look at their tweets as well as follow their YouTube videos of the presentations that went on and one of my favorite YouTube language, learners affiliate Vert is presenting the com-. I'm going to go into my language learning. I'm also going to give you an audio example. That's also sound oriented. I'm realizing by the audio examples, I'm giving you. I'm. Peta showing him a quickie side. Oh, well, then we'll go over to community and see what happened over on Instagram. And in the interviews that I did for the podcast this week. And we're also going to throw in some information on websites in Chinese and what I learned about them this week because what language they use on Chinese websites. Mandarin Chinese, Ed? So it's very very much so connected to the things I'm trying to read. Finally, we're going to talk about a star is born. How does that connect to Mandarin Chinese stick around and find out, and that's actually all we have for this episode? So your takeaways are going to be social media, and we've got a book for you, not specifically about the Chinese language, but it definitely includes some things about it as well as a lot about Chinese culture, especially in the tech sector. Let's get started after listening to my flash card rambling last week. I realized how insanely boring it is here about somebody organizes their flash cards. I just I listened to that Meg cringed. And I didn't know how to replace it with something smaller shorter, more audio sexy. So I just left it in there. But my goodness. I do not want to do a run down. Like that. Again. I do let me let me see if I could just summarize what I'm doing with flash cards in a much more palatable audio sense. I do have three kinds of flash cards. I have a first level of a matching activity of the new flash cards. I have a second level of the flash cards that are getting reviewed weekly those are just h K three. Now, I have pulled out the disc to in ages K one. And then I have the third level is one in ages K two they're going to get reviewed weekly Howe. I do all of that is probably extremely boring. So I'm just going to say that I've got multiple tiers, and I'm still sticking by what I said last week on that my flash card organization is more complicated than most people's taxes. However, it's working things are moving up. My stats are going. Up again. And I've I've I've called one of the levels. So that I can actually do it on a daily basis without getting stressed out. Looking at what I need to do that day. So it's come back to a manageable state. And that is really where I want to be because if you do motivate yourself while you're learning, and if you set up too, many things to work on you don't want to do any of it. And I found that in simplifying the flash cards and taking out some of the old ones that I know really really well, but that looking at in a stack forum stressed me out. I've actually been able to do more of the reading. So let's talk about the reading I promised. I would do nine readings last week. I was like I have to start doing nine readings a week in order to finish all of them. By the time. The test comes around. Now, there were fifteen chapters in each is K one fifteen chapters NASA's K to there's twenty chapters in Asia's K three and it's infinitely harder the concepts the vocabulary. The conversations are infinitely harder the vocabulary gets more abstract. As time goes on our learning things like. Influence and multiple words for different kinds of need and things like that. The listening is referring more on inferences more than just listening for key words, so it's getting more and more complicated. So with ages K one in ages K two I found I was able to go back and do each of the reading exercises twice or three times before the test. I do not have that kind of luxury. So what I did is I made a one sheet checklist. Dang all three of the readings for every chapter and the one writing exercise for every chapter March off the dates than the one I've worked on so far. And obviously the ones I haven't even touched yet are blank, and I realized I was actually being really good doing the reading exercises until chapter seven of ages K three and I redid chapter seven yesterday because I did the reading yesterday. And I realized why that was the demotivating chapter you heard this when we talk to germy Tang recently in and you'll hear it again when we talked to Tanya in season three, but time is really tricky in time. Unease you don't change the verbs. Eat is eat is eat does matter who's eating doesn't matter when you're eating too does not change and probably doing the tone wrong there. So no that but should is eat. It doesn't change doesn't inflect. Nothing's added on what you do. Instead our ad words in the sentence. Most of the time some of the time to tell the the listener or reader when eat is happening. And chapter seven is a heavy time chapter. And I am not very good with these kinds of nuances. And so I realized why I got motivated and stop doing the reading. Now, it was really nice to have that time period. From when I stopped doing the readings after chapter six two when I started doing them again in chapter eleven having said that there's a lot of blanks. However, I have six chapters that I've already done. Holy cow. Thank you because that's three per chapter for six chapters, and the vast majority of them are done. So that's about fifteen or sixteen of them because they're still couple blanks. But there's fifteen or sixteen of them that I definitely have done that's fifteen or sixteen less that I have to do. And that means that I was doing regular reading not just the transcript breeding, but reading exercises for the first few months of ages k three that is a relief. I thought I had completely given up on the reading exercises from the beginning of ages K three, and I'm really glad that that hasn't happened. So I just had a blip. So I'm only behind half. Of what I thought it was behind. Hey, that feels pretty good. So that one page spreadsheet made me feel a lot better last night. I don't know if I I don't think I tweeted it yet. But I'll definitely do that. And put that down on the show notes to you. It probably will not be something that you'll be like, ooh, that's amazing. But I really happy to see that if you ever really get stuck, and and really want to motivate yourself Mark down the things you have done. An I like putting dates next to them to see how consistently I do things. I may not under fully understand things. I may not be progressing at a quick pace. But I'm putting the effort in. And I think in the long term that's going to get me where I need to go when I've no idea, but I feel like that is forward moving progress. So that's my reading exercises writing. I won't I I only did one mostly word order exercises, and they're hard and I'm getting like one out of five when I do them the entire time since when I started eight K three studying to now, I'm still getting. One out of five, but I'm trying it's a small part of the test. So to be fair. If I kick ass on the listening and reading I should be good vocabulary is huge in Chinese vocabulary is absolutely positively huge. So that is where a lot of my focus goes into. I made good on that. I also put chapters on chapter to review I've started my review for chapter two today. Now, if you can hear my voice, you can probably hear that. I sound very easily. I have a cold. So my chapter to review of chapters one through five has started. But I probably will have to finish it during the week, but I feel like honing in on those five chapters and starting the review I did yesterday really gives me a tangible thing to shoot for so quantifiable things language learning goals for me need to be very specific. Just do something doesn't work for me. And I learned that the hard way by missing about two or three weeks of review on the weekends. When I was supposed to be reviewing eight just K one and two. So thank goodness for that, my motivational level and supposed to tell you my ranking from one to ten I it's interesting I wrote one to ten instead of zero to ten because I could be zero motivated I could be completely and utterly non motivated. But that doesn't feel like me to last week. I think that it was a six after looking at how much of the reading I actually have done. Over the past few months, but I didn't think I was doing it. I'm going to put myself at a seven, I know it's not a huge increase from last week. But I still feel snowed under with the listening. And I still feel like the vocabulary is just never ending. And it just feels like once I get a grip on something. There's twenty other some things that come up though. Some things are called words. So I'm just going to say seven, I don't know if I'll ever have a nine or ten week in putonghua. I really don't know. But the point is to keep going, regardless of my motivation level, why is my motivation level here. If it doesn't matter what it is. I'm not sure yet. But I figure I like quantifiable things, and so that's what I'm going to do. I'm going to quantify things. So audio example, again, most of my audio is going to be h k related right now, I hope to move on to soap, operas and movies and. And music and whatnot. But right now, it's it's ages K three they're very false. You know, textbook language textbook conversations as not just an Asia's K thing. Oh my gosh. The stuff that I used to hear when I was teaching in the English language. Oh, man. Let stuff was bad artificial to the th degree. Why do people when they speak English? Well, the materials that they're taught from are ridiculous, and that's true for Mandarin Chinese too. So having said that there is some fun moments where I can't help burst into laughter and in chapter twelve this is one of those moments. I want to play it for you. I I want you to think like a five year old. What is the sound in here coming from English from spending a lot of time in California. They're being a lot and influence in the US there. I'm just gonna say that what sound do you think I would giggle like a four year old from this brief conversation? This is h is K three chapter twelve number two. To so fun, though, Sean, we'll bump. That's it. Did you guess it? It was Bomba. I don't actually remember what the word was for that end to be quite honest with you right now. I just liked the sound of it so much that I don't wanna put one hundred characters lash word Chinese word on that. I want to just kind of keep playing with that sound Bomba. It's probably bond be a n and then Bah, like be a honestly don't wanna know. Sometimes I just like swimming in the sounds, and that doesn't happen that often for me in Mandarin Chinese, there are certain languages that. I find sound wise poem in Latin American Spanish is one of them. Mandarin. Chinese doesn't the characters pull me in the characters. I could swim in the meaning and in the artistry of the the characters I think they are infinitely fascinating going simplified to traditional is something. I hope I can get into later once I actually can use the language, but it's a very slippery slope to not actually building upwards in conversations and the ability to read my reading fluency and literacy, if I do that now, so I just stopped myself and playing with the characters I want to know. More about how to use the language to read than about the history of the language. But I hope I can go back to that. Now. Why did I find Bomba funny, and what was my cultural reference there? I grew up when Donna LA Bamba was like popular, right? I keep bringing in music to this podcast. And I don't know why. Because again, I don't find Mandarin Chinese to be very musical. And yet I keep making a keep I keep having these giggle moments with certain sounds in the language. So maybe I'm in denial over my attraction to some of the sounds that are appealing to me. I don't know. But that is something that I giggled profusely when I saw that expats and Japan, would you do with the annoying paper mail that you get to your old addresses in your home country for a few years. I'd have all of my male forward to one friend, and then I'd feel guilty for bothering them so much. So then I'd have family member. Deal with my mail, and so on and so forth. And I did this for bell. Like what twelve thirteen years, and it got annoying, and let's face it. I miss a male because people have better things to do than look after my paper correspondence. So I finally broke down and got a service from traveling mailboxes. They will literally receive your mail. You get a US address you get to pick the city that it's in and you receive mail, and they'll let you know when mail comes in they'll open it scan it for UC can read it if you really need to go forward it to you for fee. You can also get packages delivered as well. And so there's like a variety of different services that you can have where you don't have to keep bugging your friends and family to deal with your paper mail. So if you go to Steph, Fujio dot we dot com, it's S T E P H F U, see CIO dot we bleed W E E B L Y dot com. If you go to the bottom, you'll see the.

Let's talk about some community. Holy cow. Tanya Crossman is who I interviewed this week for the podcast is started learning Mandarin Chinese when she was eleven years old e- Levin to say that she has a Chinese part to her personality and linguistic side is an understatement. And I'm so flattered that she was was so tolerant of my low level of language language usage and language examples, and I'm really excited people that are that functional and that knowledgeable about Mandarin Chinese or having these conversations with me, it is definitely a motivator for me to keep going with the language. So that I can have firmer stronger examples. I know what I want to ask. But I don't have the language examples yet in a way that makes sense from Mandarin to to give to people, and I hope that gets better with time and the interim, I'm pulling on my ex language teacher self and the differences that I saw in my Chinese students who were learning or using English. And I'm pulling on that it to questioning how we can bridge over to from English to Mandarin Chinese or from any language into Mandarin Chinese, especially western languages, Latin based script languages into such an intricate writing system. How can we do that in a better way in a less daunting way? I suppose that's one of the questions that podcast revolves around. I have so many questions. It's ridiculous. Speaking of questions at the end of each interview, as you know, I ask the guests. What things I should ask future guests, either the native Mandarin Chinese speakers who learned other languages or people learning or using Mandarin Chinese adult? And she added a super interesting question. How did you learn emotional language, like how did you learn to communicate your feelings? Thank you Tanya. What a wonderful question. I think skirt around emotions in any language. I don't think I actually talk about them all out. So that's so interesting. So I don't think I ever would have come up with this question on my own, and it shows her emotional maturity, which is far above. That she not only had this thought. But had this thought when she was trying to communicate in Chinese when she was trying to really her feelings emend or in Chinese what a wonderful question. I cannot wait to ask that question to the next folks that I'm going to interview I'm Mona bit of interview hiatus with the podcast because I have so many backlog of interviews not because we're so intensely popular. But because I'm only doing eight interviews per season. And then the shorter update to slash information clips as well. I like eight interviews per season. It feels very very manageable to me, I considering the interviews. They're about ninety minutes long. It takes me while to process every Maeve said and to create the show notes and to. And just to have those conversation is are just are wonderful. Now Tanya also is on my Instagram now, and I had a language learning moment this week when I know Guan which is too close to close. I guess if you were directly translated it'd be to close the air conditioner is sort of shut off the air conditioner Guan is literally on my air conditioner remote. And it looks like a little guy with like ears. I guess if you know Mandarin Chinese or you're beginning to learn it's like tin like day with yours. So that's too close. But Guan new like there's a question that keeps coming up in each k three. And again, my tones are going to be crap. But it's like Guan Yu nude a cookie Tadao Shama. Okay. So the Golan new means about and it's usually about a person about him. What can you know about her? What can you know about the situation? What can you now? And sometimes about the dog or cat. What can you know? No. And I was like, wait a minute. What is about let me just read my Instagram thing. It's doing my head. I typed in I posted its doing my head in that Guan can mean close like to close a door. But when it's Kwong knew it means about which in my western brain feels like an opening up for information to come in. Or maybe it's a closing of an unknowing. So Tanya actually replied now ad Guan Xin and Guan lay for extra mind twisting fund. Oh, that's not nice. That's not nice. So go on chin Chin's like like careful or like a motion. Oh, okay. So maybe to open up emotionally and Guan lay lays like with the I know is tired so mo- is that like typically, I'm tired. Anyway, the other thing she wrote is but on a more helpful note. And I love that. She did the playfulness first. And then she went to the practical side. But on a more helpful note think of it both as close shut and close near lots of its compounds have something to do with the second close the near close. So that makes sense that actually makes a lot of sense. And there's a lot of words even in English thought where the base seems to mean something different than when it doesn't it? So matter of which meaning are you using which meaning is more commonly used so that was one of those moments where I was like, okay, you've use the language than she were eleven you're incredibly incredibly fluid. You're playing with the language before you give me this advice. I'm gonna believe you on this one. So that was a fun moment. I was like again, I'm such a low level that when I have these moments. I'm pretty sure I'm making connections. That are incorrect. And I don't think she said that I think she said well, look at it like this not like this. So she was leaning towards the more common meanings. And I think that's just so incredibly cool. And this happened a lot on Twitter last year when I was more on Twitter, and it's happening a lot on Instagram. And I think it's really neat to be able it's really neat. These days to be able to learn a language on share it with folks who are way ahead of you and have them interact with you about that. It really makes me feel like I'm not totally messing this up. Like, some of my observations might actually be accurate. They might actually be interesting to people that already know the language and the more interaction, I have about the language the more. I think the meanings will stick. So I may not be able to have a lot of conversations in the language yet. But having conversations about the language really helps the meanings stick. So I can get to the point where I can communicate both on paper and impersonal with the language. So thank you Tanya that was a fun interaction to have on Instagram over in my virtual ex Pat podcast. We're reinvestigate the geographical and virtual lives intersection. I interviewed a lovely woman. Name my from the intellect grime channel YouTube channel, and she does a lot of different kinds. Of YouTube channel YouTube videos, like philosophy and books and languages. So I feel like it's not cheating. It all to bring her into this conversation. The reason why I do that is because we were talking about websites in different languages Arabic's. Her first language, and she was saying, how Arabic websites are a mess. So she usually uses English websites. And if there's an Arabic version sometimes she'll click on that. And sometimes she won't an I, of course, chimed in with how messy Mandarin Chinese website seemed to look to me. I can't really read a lot of them yet. It's very specific vocabulary that I don't have when I go to tau, which is the Amazon equivalent, but has a million times more things I can't read most of the stuff on the screen. But I also don't know how to move my eyes around the screen, and I joke Lee told her in the interview, and again, I'll put it down in the show notes, how messy to western I the website looks it looks like five hundred things are hitting you once and I was actually reading and this is your takeaway. For this podcast episode. I'm reading a superpower, which was actually recommended in a talk from Eric Ohlander. Who was also on a previous episode. I may not have a Facebook page for this experience, folks. But let me tell you the people that I talked to for this podcast end up becoming a part of my mental life in many many ways. Anyway, and Kaifu Lee is the gentlemen is the absolute genius in the gentlemen, who wrote a superpowers again, it'll be down the show notes, and I listened to basically an answer to my own complaint about Chinese websites this week via that book KYW describes how American weapons that were in English that came over to China failed because they didn't set up their websites with the local mindset. And what was that local mindset? He did a really interesting comparison between English users looking at websites like a dictionary. They look for one thing they find it. They do it or buy it or read it or whatever and they're done. And he's. Said that Chinese Mandarin. Chinese users language users use websites like a mall. They explore. They go everywhere. They jump around. They go in they go out. They really really spend time on a website. And once I heard that I thought. Wow. That really really explains why it feels like there's so much currently according to this viewpoint. They don't try to take it all in at once. They spend their time walking around the website. So I thought that was a very interesting way to compare the different ways that we navigate websites, and it makes sense if you want to spend time on a website, and it's so clean cut that there's almost no time you can spend because there's barely anything on it compared to what you want. It makes sense that you wouldn't want to use it. That's just one analogy that he does between those two cultures. And it doesn't just spend time comparing China with America. But there is a fair number of that affair. Of those comparisons. Because he spent a fair bit of time in his studies and work life in America. But he does spend a lot of time explaining the technological growth in China. And I think that's something that often gets overlooked people. Stop at the beginning stage copycat stage that China was at a while ago. And they don't realize how far beyond that China has gotten an I think this book is my new answer. When people say when when people start talking negatively about China and is eight, but there's good things to every place has good and bad a lot of people say like what? And before. I would explain it. And now, I'm just going to actually I might actually get some copies of this book into shove it in their hand and go here read this because there's again, still good and bad. But there's a lot of good explanation on how things have progressed, and how there is a lot of innovation happening in China in the technology field and other fields, but he is focused on technology. It's a book about AI. So I mean there is that. But it's a really really interesting really quick read. I am doing it on audio. But I can still notice how quickly this would be a page Turner. If you were to do it in paper form, so I highly recommend a superpower Kaif only the last thing I want to talk about is a Twitter post from Germany Tian who is also a previous guest on the podcast and he released see on October twenty second. He tweeted a star is born which a lot of people. I think are watching right now, it's a really popular movie with Bradley Cooper and lady Gaga who I love and Germany said a star is born two thousand eighteen was released in China. He's doing comparison between three places in China, and he translated into English birth of a star in Taiwan as birth of a megastar, I'm going to stick to the English here in China as an I'm going to read the translation only because I can't read the descript for these words in China as birth of a star and Taiwa. John as birth of a megastar and in Hong Kong as starry dreams, deep feelings, and it's so cool that it's so interesting that not only can maneuver through Mandarin Chinese and for Hong Kong, I'm guessing that was translated from Cantonese to the point of showing us, the different meanings that they're pulling out of the title and out of the movie, and he has a movie poster in there as well to show us in the tweet, and I'll put it down in the show notes. And so I couldn't help but ask him. Hey, where does the nuance in the meaning come from is that the translation alone or something else? And he said, quote, so I guess it's about how they want position the film with audiences, and then Chong men who I do not know, but chimed did on the conversation, which is why these conversations happen in public because they're meant to be a shared conversation. She said, I believe it's also because starry dreams can also refer to the female leads dreams of becoming a star because a Mandarin. This is often referred to as literally. Celebrity dream. And. Yeah. So that's pretty cool. So a couple of people chimed in on that conversation. So let's just a really really cool thing when you get to the point where you can maneuver between two languages you can compare. How stories are interpreted? I love stories. You're listening to a podcast. So I'm guessing on some level. You're a story person to is that true. Let me know tell me in the socials how much of a story person are you? So another connecting moment that I forgot about that. I just saw on my Twitter was finishing up reading northern girls. And I was looking online to see what people had written about their impression of Sean key, the author of her book northern girls, and what I found was Rebecca Erickson who is translating the novel into Swedish, and I was wondering if she was translating from English into Swedish because I've heard that that is done I even realize that until recently, but her degree looks like she studied Chinese her Twitter account says. HD in Mandarin Chinese, and she is an occasional translator. So I'm guessing she's going from Chinese into Swedish set super cool. So I'm slated to have a conversation with her. I don't I haven't asked yet if she'll be on this podcast. Rebecca, will you be on this podcast? But you know, I'm gonna ask 'cause I can't help it. So that's really cool. That's really really cool. I love it. When I can just take a look on social media search for how to connect to the people that wrote the things I'm reading I'm reach out and find other folks that I was actually looking for Sean E, the author actually also tweeted back a thank you for for reading and liking the book, we tell you wasn't expecting. So that was pretty cool to I'm a huge author fan girl. I just I think anybody that can put a cohesive beautiful narrative onto paper has my utmost respect, like a million fold a million fold. All right. So that's all I have. I hope later. On in the podcast. You're too from. Now, I can read stuff in Mandarin Chinese myself and give at give these comparisons these linguistic, quirks and things and cultural tidbits directly from my brain, not just from other people's interpretations. But I'm really excited that I can get a window into the linguistic. So of this crazy crazy language known is put on wall and to the English speaking community Mandarin Chinese, so that's all I have for you this week. Okay. So next week is way, and he was born in China grew up in China and went over to the US for his studies. I actually knew him from the PHD program that I left intentionally without finishing in Iowa. And he graciously agreed to despite the fact that he has a baby a wife and a PHD program that he's working on with double major. He was gracious enough to lend some time to dissect how native speakers of Mandarin. Chinese learn the language at least how he learned. The language while he was living in China. So that will come out next Sunday. I look forward to your feedback. Questions comments anything at all again, if you could my Whibley page stuff S T E P H F, you see CIO dot we'd lead W E B L Y forward slash about abo UT. Yeah. I spelt about I did it get all my social media stuff. You can see my Email address or you can leave a voice message with these speak pipe button. The big orange button any way that you do it. I'd love to hear back from you on what you don't and don't like want and don't want. What do you think of the interviews? What do you think of this stink in podcast? It's still really really new. So I appreciate all of your feedback. And if you are learning or grew up with Mandarin Chinese hit me up. Yeah. Let's do it more soon. Thank you so much for listening to this episode of the changing scripts podcast, again, if you are learning the Chinese language, or if you're coming from the Chinese language. Learning another language. I'd love to interview for this podcast. Please feel free to contact me. Any social media way that you see God and contact me, and we will hash out how to get you on the sound creation knows the changing scripts podcast a lot more coming your way soon.
